Dr. Jim Christenson announces that the grant application to CIHR to establish the Canadian Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium was successful. This grant will enable the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium work to continue in Canada. The 3 core research sites will be UBC and the BCEHS (Christenson), the U of Ottawa and OPALS agencies (Stiell) and the U of Toronto Rescu network (Morrison). The Institute for Cardiovascular and Respiratory Health will provide $300,000 per year for 5 years and is matched by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. The BC effort will be possible with support from the Provincial Health Service Authority. The goal is to establish Canadian registries in cardiac arrest and major trauma in at least 6 provinces, to produce high level observational studies and to establish a foundation for efficient, important clinical trials.
