It’s easy to feel alone and abandoned post-cardiac arrest and with this event we hope to banish that feeling!
As a cardiac arrest survivor you might not realise you are quite unique, survival rates are only 8% in the UK. There is a good chance that you’ve never met another survivor face to face, and this follows for partners, lifesavers and family of survivors.
Our events are one of the rare opportunities where you get to chat and interact with others who’ve been through a similar experience and “GET IT“.
The educational talks have been scheduled in hour-long sessions, with 2 talks per session. There is a break of at least 30 mins between each session for refreshments and mingling time.
Saturday 28th September, 2019
The majority of the daytime event will be held in the conference suite, just a few minutes walk from the hotel. There is a small incline between the two buildings and should anyone need it there is a golf buggy available for transport.
Heartwize and colleagues will be undertaking CPR+AED training sessions in the Empingham room, which is in a separate building near the main conference suite.
09:30 – Tea, coffee, pastries, mingle, exhibition
When you register you will be given a coloured name tag:
White – Survivor
Blue – Family
Yellow – Allied Health Professional
There will be plenty of opportunities to talk to other delegates during the day and we encourage you to engage with others.
