CanROC is made possible through strong relationships between healthcare providers, researchers, and educators. The paramedics and firefighters that respond to and treat major trauma and cardiac arrest patients form the cornerstone of the CanROC network. Without your support none of this would be possible, and we are always looking for ways to include and engage new emergency responders.
What are the benefits of participating in CanROC?
The first mandate and primary benefit of CanROC is the improvement of patient outcomes for all Canadians. CanROC helps our collaborating partners achieve this through two primary mechanisms: the advancement of prehospital resuscitation science, and ongoing focus on continuous quality improvement.
- Participating services have access to reporting tools 24/7. Reports provide a breakdown of various performance metrics related to response and patient care, patient demographics, and outcomes.
- CanROC works with training/education and CQI departments to provide data to help guide continuing medical education programs and highlight gaps in care where services can improve.
- For some regions, feedback may be available upon request or as part of service-led initiatives. This feedback may include information on patient outcomes and key performance metrics; past studies have shown that monitoring and feedback is an important tool for improving quality of care.
- CanROC is a network of emergency services, academic institutions and health organizations working together. By participating in CanROC each member organization gains access to a large network of like-minded professionals that can collaborate to share best practices across Canada to improve resuscitative care as an entire country.
