ANZCOR Guideline Development

arrow icon

ANZCOR is the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation, of which the Australian Resuscitation Council and New Zealand Resuscitation Council are its members. Through ANZCOR, Australian and New Zealand interests are represented on the International Liaison Committee of Resuscitation (ILCOR).

ANZCOR guidelines replace earlier New Zealand Resuscitation Council guidelines and are endorsed by both Councils. ANZCOR guidelines are informed by peer-reviewed international evidence. No matter who you are as a rescuer – bystander, first aider, first responder or health professionals – ANZCOR guidelines facilitate a standard approach to resuscitation best practice in Australia and New Zealand.
