ROC is a clinical trial network focusing on research in the area of pre-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest and severe traumatic injury.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Resuscitation Consortium is to provide infrastructure and project support for clinical trials and other outcome-oriented research in the areas of cardiopulmonary arrest and severe traumatic injury that will rapidly lead to evidence-based change in clinical practice. The focus on pre-hospital and early hospitalization interventions recognizes the critical importance of this time frame and early congruence between the emergency cardiac and trauma populations. ROC Investigators will conduct collaborative trials of variable size and duration (equally directed towards the cardiac and trauma populations), leveraging the combined power of the member institutions and promoting the rapid translation of promising scientific and clinical advances for the public good.
