Emergency University Presents at Citizen CPR Foundation / Emergency Cardiac Care Update 2017

December 2017 – REDWOOD CITY, CALIFORNIA – Renard Arsenault, MICP, Emergency University’s Director of Emergency Response Programs presented on, “Incorporating Behavioral Science Methods into the Training of Lay Rescuers Can Increase the Likelihood of a Response” at the Citizen CPR Foundation-Emergency Cardiac Care Update in New Orleans on December 8, 2017.

Mr. Arsenault revealed the training methodology designed to motivate an effective response and explained how incorporating behavioral science-based best practices into lay rescuer training can significantly increase response rates from 2.1% to 100%.

Mr. Arsenault stated, “Statistics show most lay people are reluctant to act, but by incorporating some simple behavioral training techniques we can reduce a responder’s fear and thus increase the likelihood of the lay rescuer performing CPR and attaching an AED.”

Emergency University, an innovator in Emergency Response System design, blended emergency medical training and innovative smartphone response technologies, has incorporated its best practices and cutting-edge technologies into their comprehensive Worksafe™ Program. The Program has proven to quickly facilitate a planned, practiced and organized emergency medical response 100% of the time. EU’s research has shown that in addition to learning the basic skills, the affective aspect of education must be incorporated into the training methodology to turn risk-averse bystanders into "willing" and capable responders.
