There is an organisation in the US called SCAA suddencardiacarrest.org/aws...
Who provide a service called COPE to survivors of CA.
Welcome to COPE!
Did you know?
Between five to eight percent of those suffering an SCA survive – approximately 15,000 – 20,000 people survive SCA in the U.S. annually. Ninety percent of survivors suffer impairments to acts of daily living and the adjustment period of a post event is between 6-12 months. With such staggering numbers, little has been done to provide psychological and emotional support to patients and their families. The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association recognizes this void and has developed COPE (Cardiovascular Outcomes; Psychosocial Education) as a resource for SCA survivors and their loved ones. COPE also provides resources for healthcare professionals caring for SCA patients. In addition to information on emotional, psychological, and neurological issues, you will find information for those suffering from brain trauma, and medical research, studies, and resources to assist healthcare professional provide greater support to SCA survivors.
IS ANY ONE FAMILIAR WITH A SIMILAR UK BASED ORGANISATION PLEASE?
