Confronting the Challenges of Expeditionary Medicine

Organised with the Official Support of the UK Defence Medical Services, Medical Support Operations 2016 will bring together 100+ Commanders of Medical Commands, Chief Medical Officers, Heads of Medical Procurement and industry executives from across the globe to discuss the challenges and success shaping the provision of medical support for now and the future.

In doing so it provides a rare platform to share lessons learned and best practice engaging in international collaboration on a very real level with key allies and strengthen the message of cooperation with counterparts across the world.

With the number of mass casualty operations increasing globally, militaries and NGO’s are finding their resource and capabilities stretch to breaking point. With this in mind this unique conference will debate their following key priorities:
  • Maximising military and NGO ability to deploy emergency medical facilities to deal with mass casualty situations globally
  • Improving medical equipment, procedures and training standards and best practice to enable those on the ground to effectively deal with a wide range of potential emergency situations
  • Increasing inter-agency cooperation to ensure smooth delivery of medical care between organisations
  • Providing specialist care to patients untreatable in the field hospital environment

Why you should attend Medical Support Operations:

  • Learn from industry and NGO case studies of expeditionary medical operations and best practice to maximise medical and personnel resources
  • Assess how requirements are set to alter in order to adapt to the changing dynamic of medical operations including logistics, communications and data exchange
  • Gain an understanding of new developments in medical operations including equipment, software and medical sundries to increase the quality of expeditionary care
  • Drive your training and education initiatives to prepare your personnel in an era of isolated and increasingly autonomous environments in which the range of responsibility and care required is expected to extend
