Last week was the ERC #RESUS2020 of which we were included as part of their Survivorship day. We know people want to meet-up and learn from each other and during these COVID times, that’s not so easy.
The online conference is the next best thing and this was a first for the European Resuscitation Council and us, so we’d love to hear what you thought – even if you didn’t attend.
Thanks for your help, it’s much appreciated.
After our first meet-up in February 2015, I realised I was not alone. It was the first time since my cardiac arrest the previous year that I had spoken face-to-face with someone who had experienced what I had. This was also true for my wife, who also happened to be my lifesaver. From that meet-up, the idea of SCA UK was born. Since then, we have achieved a considerable amount, primarily providing information, resources and support to others in a similar situation but also raising the profile of survivorship and the need for better post-discharge care. We are starting to get traction in this, and with the formation of the charity, I genuinely believe we have a bright future ahead and will make a significant difference in the lives of many who join our ranks.
