Celebration Week 9-13 October
We’re kicking off our celebration week with an attempt to set a record for the most people learning CPR in 2 hours, and are seeking small multidisciplinary teams (ED doctors, nurses, managers) to help teach CPR to the public in their region.
We also want help to promote important educational messages on other themes during the week – including mental health and violence prevention – providing advice, education and support on the issues that matter. The flyer below gives more information on the themes.
If your team would like to take part and help raise funds for the new RCEM Foundation, which we think will inspire great research and educational projects, please register your team by Friday 8 September 2017.
To help you plan your event or take part in the CPR record, we’ve put together some tips, information and resources for you to use, that we hope will be helpful.
To take part, or for more information contact EM50@rcem.ac.uk. Thank you in advance for your help – we really want to make this a memorable occasion and your help will be invaluable.

European Restart a Heart Day - 16 October 2017
Our CPR record attempt is part of the Resuscitation Council UK’s Restart a Heart Campaign, with the 16 October 2017 designated as European Restart a Heart Day.
The Royal College of Emergency Medicine fully supports the day and is proud to be a partner in the project, as it will ensure that many more people are trained in CPR.
We would encourage any departments that for any reason cannot take part in our record attempt on 9 October 2017 to get involved with European Restart a Heart Day.
Further information and details of how to get involved can be found at resus.org.uk/events/rsah
