Objectives and indicators of success:

OBJECTIVES :

1. Increase knowledge about first aid in cardiac arrest by giving simulation of CPR after the seminar

2. Increase public awareness of cardiovascular disease by giving a lecture about Cardiovascular in the seminar

3. Doing primary prevention for people who are at risk or not

SUCCESS INDICATORS :

1. The number of participants attending d-day is 100 people. Can be seen from the attendance list / attendance on the day H

2. Increased the value of the pre test to post test by 30% d-day. Can be calculated from the% increase in pre test to post test

Methodology:

We give the participants firstly a lecture about cardiovascular in general and the dissease. We provide them a video simulation how to do a CPR. In the end of the seminar the participants try CPR by themselves and monitored by a doctor.

Plans for evaluation:

Our activity is monitored by the pre test and post test score. Surprisingly, their knowledge increase rapidly only in a day. The evaluation of PERICARDIUM’s activities so far has gone well, all the indicators that have been set have been reached. What needs to be improved for the coming year is the timeliness of meetings and preparation for activities not too tight. Because indeed the tight schedule of lectures and the schedule of activities at the FKUB collegiate, for the preparation of PERICARDIUM this seems to be often tight.
