In a project funded by the British Heart Foundation, we have identified factors that delay the initiation of life-saving CPR during 999 calls. We are exploring whether it is possible to incorporate ultra-brief versions of BCTs into the scripts that ambulance service call-handlers use during these calls.
A one-day event will be scheduled in March, likely at a venue in Edinburgh, Glasgow or perhaps in Birmingham before/after UKSBM (depending on the availability of those who respond). Travel from within the UK will be reimbursed and lunch and refreshments provided on the day.
We invite you to join a panel of around 10 behaviour-change experts for a one-day event which aims to do 3 things
- identify the BCTs most likely to be effective in speeding initiation of CPR
- develop the briefest possible forms of the BCTs identified
- explore methods to evaluate the effectiveness of the techniques prior to their use in real-life calls
This will be a stimulating, interactive event, providing an opportunity to discuss the application of behavioural science to a novel context. The opportunity to discuss the briefest form of effective BCTs with interested colleagues may stimulate new research ideas/applications and we really hope you will be part of the conversation.
