A Call to Establish a Global Resuscitation Alliance

On June 6-7, 2015 at the Utstein Abbey near Stavanger, Norway, 36 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) leaders, researchers, and experts from throughout the world convened to address the challenge of how to increase community cardiac arrest survival and how to achieve implementation of best practices and worthwhile programs. We call for the establishment of a Global Resuscitation Alliance in order to expand internationally the reach and utility of the Resuscitation Academy. Such a global effort will promote best practices and offer help with implementation to countless communities. A Call to Establish a Global Resuscitation Alliance1
