In collaboration with McGill University Teaching and Learning Services (TLS), the McGill WRAH Team created a user-friendly virtual bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) module on the McGill myCourses delivery platform. This short 20-minute module aims to engage and enable the community to enhance their resuscitation knowledge and skills from the convenience of their home with the guidance, encouragement, and expertise of expert resuscitation physicians and sudden cardiac arrest survivors.

This free module is open to all and available in French and English.

The McGill WRAH Team is working with the Patient Education Office at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) to create a guide that will be provided to patients and their loved ones. It will contain clear and practical information about out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. From prevention to recovery, we aim to cover the topics that will be most useful to patients.

Stay tuned for more details!

The McGill WRAH social media campaign consists of comprehensive and user-friendly platforms that are bilingual and easily accessible to any age group on the WRAH Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. These platforms are used to share educational content about cardiac arrest and bystander resuscitation with the general public. In order to ensure that they audience is kept engaged and that they understand the basic principles, Instagram quizzes have been incorporated into our campaign to allow individuals to test their comprehension of our educational posts.
