About this event

  • Location Online
  • Organised by Emergency Medicine, Anaesthesia, Military Medicine

Join a faculty of world-renowned experts from different specialties of medicine to share experiences, to discuss innovations and interventions that can improve patient care, and to identify challenges and look to the future.

This unique webinar will be set in 5 themed sessions, including managing challenging circumstances, difficult decisions, transfer, career advice and cardiac arrest.

Hear our experts from both military and civilian pre-hospital setting share their experiences and thoughts on current practice and important advances in the field. Topics covered will be of interest to clinicians as well as allied healthcare professionals who look after acutely unwell or injured patients, and will not need to have any experience in the field.

During this session, participants will be able to:

  • Be able to demonstrate knowledge of how to manage challenging clinical circumstances in the pre-hospital sphere
  • Reflect on pre-hospital decision making in particular in complex cases where risk is high and evidence poor
  • Gain an understanding of advances in out of hospital cardiac arrest and if and when extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation is appropriate
  • Acquire 'top tips' for the application process for pre-hospital emergency medicine training

A CPD certificate with 5 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
