ISBN: 9781788513937

A case study of the Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest Strategy which assesses the extent to which the Strategy embodies the ‘Scottish Approach’ to policy.

Executive Summary

This report sets out the findings from a series of interviews with partner organisations involved in the design and delivery of Scotland’s first national Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) Strategy, published in 2015. Staff were interviewed about the development of the Strategy, the on-going delivery, the strengths and challenges, as well as the main features of the policy-making process. By canvassing the views of those involved throughout this process it has been possible to assess to what extent the Strategy embodies what is known as the ‘Scottish Approach’ to policy.
