The consortium has identified a number of strategies to deliver its program of research:
- To undertake large multi-centre clinical trials of innovative interventions to improve patient outcomes.
- To establish an Australia-wide OHCA ‘epistry’ (epidemiologic registry) to monitor and report on the population-based effects of changes in pre-hospital resuscitation policy and practice.
- To examine system-based strategies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of pre-hospital emergency care for OHCA in urban and rural environments.
- To build capacity in pre-hospital emergency care research across Australia through graduate research and post-doctoral training.
