Delivering Accessible CPR Sessions
Welcome to our hub for CPR trainers! We want everyone in Scotland to feel confident to help save a life, and we know that needs to include the 1 in 5 Scots who identify as Disabled. You told us that you needed more resources to help you support disabled learners and make your sessions accessible. We have put together this page in response.
This is a resource that will continue to grow and develop to suit the needs of CPR trainers. If you have any resources that you think should be linked in this hub, trainer news to add below, or have any feedback on the page, then please get in touch at email@example.com.
Through research we found that disabled people do not regularly attend CPR courses, as there is a belief within the disabled community that they are for able-bodied learners. Like you, we want to empower everyone to help save a life. We created this page to let disabled people know that they too can learn CPR and would welcome your support to bring this message to the disabled community.Chris Purnell, Scottish Ambulance Service
Please remember to not be afraid to speak about difference with us. Disabled people know about difference and adaptation - most of us have been dealing with it for our whole lives. If you don't know something, then please ask us. You won't offend us. We are not anything to be afraid of.Chris Purnell, Scottish Ambulance Service
Play Your Part
Watch our Play Your Part campaign video. The video emphasises the importance of the chain of survival, and the necessity of roles other than performing CPR. It would provide a good introduction to the importance of different roles in saving a life in a training session.
Thank you for joining us in trying to get everyone in Scotland CPR ready. We would like for you to stay in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org – let us know how you get on with making your sessions accessible, and if you have any questions or suggestions for others.
