Multi-Centre Cluster-Randomized Implementation of Canadian Syncope Risk Score based Practice Recommendations for Emergency Department Syncope Management: 

In collaboration with the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, this study will assess the effectiveness of the knowledge translation of implementing the practice recommendation based on the Canadian Syncope Risk Score. This was derived and validated in Canada. During the control phase, only baseline practice patterns will be collected (starting September 18th, 2023). During the intervention phase (start date TBD), providers will be able to apply the Canadian Syncope Risk Score, decide disposition and have 15-day outpatient live cardiac monitoring device available to be provided to the patients before discharge. The central monitoring station in Windsor, Ontario will detect arrhythmias immediately including those secondary to a non-cardiac condition and would dispatch an ambulance to the patient.
