Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium
The Resuscitation Outcome Consortium (ROC), and specifically the ALPS and TXA trials, have no connection to the PARAMEDIC-2 Trial (Adrenaline in Cardiac Arrest) that is set to begin in England and Wales.
Information for opting out of the PARAMEDIC-2 Trial can be found here: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/med/research/hscience/ctu/trials/critical/paramedic2/optout/
Opt-Out of ROC Research
We respect the wishes of members of our community who do not want to be enrolled in the ROC research clinical trials. If community members do not want to participate in these research trials, they can request to opt-out.
We offer a stainless steel bracelet with the words "NO STUDY" engraved on it. Local paramedics have been trained to look for this bracelet on the wrist of patients and will not enroll any person wearing this bracelet. Community members will have to wear this bracelet during the time these studies are being conducted beginning in 2012. If you have a study bracelet from previous ROC studies, you can use it to opt-out of this study as well.
To get your opt-out bracelet, contact the ROC staff:
