This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||cardiovascular risk factors, coronary disease, cardiac arrest|
|Treatments||cpr training using the family and friends cpr anytime video self instruction, implementation of a hospital-based cpr training model, follow-up prompting to encourage skill retention|
|Sponsor||University of Pennsylvania|
|Start date||November 2011|
|End date||July 2015|
|Trial size||5000 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01514656, CRS- 814676|
Prompt delivery of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a crucial determinant of survival for many victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), yet bystander CPR is provided in less than one third of witnessed SCA events. A number of barriers to bystander CPR training have been identified including time and cost of the training course. Since the large majority of arrest events occur in the home environment, studies have suggested that providing CPR training to family members of hospitalized cardiac patients may serve as a useful approach to address an environment in which bystander CPR is frequently not provided. Utilizing an existing in-hospital program to train adult family members, the investigators will assess the skills of those who learn CPR through two different education methods (video-only and video self-instruction (VSI) kit).

|Official title||Hospital-based CPR Training for At-risk Family Members Using a Video-self Instruction Kit or Video-only|
|Principal investigator||Benjamin S. Abella, MD, MPhil|
|Description||The long term goal of the investigators work is to implement real world CPR training strategies that match training locales with at-risk populations, maximize resuscitation skill retention, and promote willingness to act. To accomplish this, the investigators will empower stakeholders at UPHS and local area hospitals to develop local implementation approaches, using either volunteers or nursing staff as training proctors. These stakeholders will be studied as a research subset. The training proctors will train family members or friends of patients at risk for cardiac arrest using either a video-only method or video self-instruction (VSI) kit, and empower them with the lifesaving skill of CPR. The investigators will use the American Heart Association's CPR Anytime VSI kit which comes equip with a DVD and inflatable manikin. For the group receiving the video-only method, the investigators will remove the inflatable manikin and train the subjects with the DVD. The investigators will randomize family members of high risk for CA to either the video-only or VSI kit method of training. The training proctors will be instructed to switch training methods every 6 months. The investigators will follow up with the study subjects and conduct CPR skills tests from 6 to 12 months from time of training to assess whether the subjects retained their skills or if they had an opportunity to use the skills that they learned. The investigators will also gather information on how the subjects would like to be encouraged to practice their skills. The investigators will send a reminder notification every two months following training, to encourage the subjects to refresh their training skills. At the follow-up skills test at 6 to 12 months, we will administer a survey to assess whether the prompting encouraged the subjects to practice their skills.|
