- Patient and Family Perspectives: Incorporating narratives from patients and their families, the training provides a holistic view of the impact of timely and effective intervention.
- Action-Oriented Learning: Focused on empowering paramedics and first responders to not only recognise the signs of aortic dissection but also to understand and implement the best actions to enhance patient survival chances.
North East Ambulance Service NHS Mission

Community First Responders
Community First Responders, integral to the service, are trained volunteers who provide early intervention in emergencies, including cardiac arrests. They operate across various settings, contributing significantly to the Chain of Survival.
