Consultant, Department of Emergency Medicine, KK Women's and Children's Hospital

Dr. Jade Kua is a Consultant in the Department of Emergency Medicine at KK Women's and Children's Hospital. She is also Adjunct Assistant Professor at both the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore and YLLSoM at the National University of Singapore. She is also a Consultant for the Hospital Services Division at the Ministry of Health. Dr. Kua is also President of the Association of Women Doctors (Singapore) and is a champion for the DARE (Dispatcher-Assisted first REsponder) Programme, which aims to help bystanders gain the knowledge and confidence to save lives. Unlike the full four-hour CPR and AED certification course, the DARE Programme is a one-hour hands-on session. Participants learn to dial 995, stay on the line with the medical dispatcher, perform CPR as directed, and use an AED with voice prompts to help a victim’s heart restart beating. Guidance is provided throughout the resuscitation process, similar to what one might experience in a real emergency. Follow DARE on instagram @daretosave_sg, #daretosaveaheart and our Facebook page: Dispatcher-Assisted first Responder - DARE
