Information for the public

Overall Study Aim

In collaboration with people from areas with characteristics of high-risk we aim to:

  • Identify reasons for low bystander resuscitation rates in communities living in high-risk areas through literature and primary evidence synthesis
  • Develop, implement and evaluate theoretically informed interventions.

 Overall Study Objectives

  • To establish a community based public involvement advisory group to co-produce key aspects of the study
  • To identify barriers and facilitators to performing CPR or defibrillators use in high-risk areas through realist evidence synthesis and develop theoretically informed interventions
  • Prioritise interventions with community partners and other stakeholders for evaluation.
  • Develop a realist informed evaluation framework and associated data collection tools, including assessment of locally made intervention changes.

Conduct an implementation evaluation of the prioritised interventions with embedded feasibility stud

Who will take part in the study

We are looking to speak with people from a diverse range of communities who are familiar with life in these marginalised, high-risk areas in the West Midlands. We would especially like to hear from people from Black African, Caribbean, South Asian or mixed heritages. If that’s you, then your views would be a really valuable part of our research. We really want to find out your thoughts on:

  • What might be stopping people in your community from doing bystander CPR
  • Any ideas you might have to improve things.
