World Restart A Heart

Activities that took place during World Restart a Heart week

World Restart a Heart (WRAH) is a global initiative that aims to increase public awareness and rates of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). During the week of October 11, 2021, members of the McGill Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FMHS) led a special Bicentennial edition of the WRAH 2021 campaign at McGill.

This student-led interprofessional initiative brought together students, residents, faculty members, healthcare professionals, and administration from the FMHS, the Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning (SCSIL) and the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC).

With the current restrictions in place as a result of COVID-19, the team worked hard to create an engaging and informative series of virtual events, along with a high-impact social media campaign through partnerships with special WRAH ambassadors.  

The goal is to educate communities across Canada about the importance of bystander CPR and to enhance CPR knowledge and skills... and ultimately, to reduce the number of cardiac arrest deaths.
