Expedition & Wilderness Medicine (EWM) is delighted to launch the International World Extreme Medicine Conference and EXPO series website. The conference will be held at One Wimpole Street, home of the Royal Society of Medicine, in central London, from 15th April to 18th April 2012.
The conference will deliver four days of CME-accredited knowledge, insight and innovation in the field of remote medicine and its sub-disciplines: expedition and wilderness, pre-hospital and, disaster and relief. Delivering these messages will be speakers who are amongst the global leaders in remote extreme medicine, who are ideally placed to provide expert knowledge transfer to delegates.
As you are aware, over the past ten years the care of casualties has significantly improved. Often, this has been driven forward by conflict, the exponential rise in natural disasters and our capacity to respond on an international scale. All of this is concomitant with a growing interest and recognition of remote and expedition medicine which has triggered the need for an extreme medicine conference.
Developed specifically with medical professionals in mind, the International World Extreme Medicine Conference and EXPO also welcomes medical specialists (nurses and paramedics) and a number of university medical students.
Expedition & Wilderness Medicine look forward to meeting everyone at this exciting hallmark event.
