KCL Wilderness Medicine Society, Emergency Medicine Society and St George’s Pre-hospital Care Society are delighted to announce that tickets are now available for the Second Annual Extreme Medicine Conference 2015. We are anticipating a multi-disciplinary audience with a range of skill sets and experiences. There is no such thing as too new or too experienced as our tailored program will ensure that every delegate gains from a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
We have an amazing list of confirmed speakers including:
- Dr Ben Singer – Pre-hospital ECMO
- Lt Col Dr Guy Sanders – Trauma in Afghanistan and Haemorrhage Management
- Dr Simon Jones – MSF and Expedition Medicine
- Dr Jason Fitch – Dive Medicine
- Sr Kay Mitchell – Extreme Physiology
- Dr Andy Grieve – RAF – Assessing Patients in Extreme/Difficult Environments
- Dr Russell Hearn – Wilderness Medicine in the US
- Mr Michael Bradfield – King’s Sierra Leone Partnership
We are also awaiting confirmation from a couple of additional speakers.
We will also be hosting an interactive Careers Forum at the end of the conference delivered by some of the speakers.
There will be Clinical Skills Workshops on the Saturday afternoon and either Moulages or Masterclasses on the Sunday morning dependent on each delegate’s experience. We want to tailor make the Sunday morning to ensure that each delegate is able to maximise on the session. However any delegate can opt to attend the masterclasses if they would prefer. All teaching will be provided by ED/Anaesthetics Registrars and Senior Paramedics.
Masterclasses will include:
- Primary Survey and Initial Management
- Secondary Survey and Handovers
- Scene Safety
- Trauma Radiology – including a prize quiz
The Conference Social will be held at Guy’s Bar on Saturday evening and will be a great chance for everyone to get to know each other and network.
The link for the tickets is http://www.kclsu.org/ents/event/2127/ and non-KCL students will have to create a guest account which only takes a few minutes.
We look forward to welcoming as many of your students as can attend for what promises to be an excellent weekend of Pre-hospital and Wilderness Medicine.
