Prof Ian Jacobs
Untimely loss of ARC Chairman, Professor Ian Jacobs
We wish to advise of the tragic loss of Professor Ian Jacobs yesterday (Sunday 19th October 2014) after a sudden illness.  

For over 25 years Prof Jacobs has served the Australian Resuscitation Council tirelessly in various roles, including as Chair since 2000. His contribution to the national and international resuscitation community has been immense.  

We at the Australian Resuscitation Council are privileged to have worked with this passionate supporter of resuscitation.   The international resuscitation community has lost an inspirational leader, a prolific academic, and a great friend. He will be sadly missed.  

Our thoughts are with his wife Judith and his family.

If you would like to send a private message to Ianís family or to the Australian Resuscitation Council please forward to arc@surgeons.org
The Australian Resuscitation Council is a voluntary co-ordinating body which represents all major groups involved in the teaching and practice of resuscitation.

The Australian Resuscitation Council is sponsored by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists.

The Australian Resuscitation Council produces Guidelines to meet its objectives in fostering uniformity and simplicity in resuscitation techniques and terminology. Guidelines are produced after consideration of all available scientific and published material and are only issued after acceptance by all member organisations. This does not imply, however, that methods other then those recommended are ineffective.

It is the policy of the Australian Resuscitation Council to respect the autonomy of member organisations.
