Abstract

The management of family during out of hospital cardiac arrests and death notification to the family of the deceased in the out-of-hospital setting are topics that are poorly evidenced. Two focus groups consisting of six participants
in each were conducted, discussing the two subjects. The results suggest that paramedics prefer family not to be present in the room due to a number of reasons and that they don’t feel sufficiently trained by their paramedic courses in order to manage family during resuscitation or BBN. The study highlighted a need for more research on both subjects.
