Dr Rachel Hawes of the Great North Air Ambulance Service is one of our speakers at the Prehospital Trauma Symposium. She will be discussing the benefits and challenges of carrying blood on board the aircraft. GNNAS is one of a few air ambulance services able to bring blood products to the roadside.
Are you a clinician who have seen the benefits of blood products being used for one of your patients in the prehospital setting? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
If you would like to hear from Dr Hawes and some other influential speakers book your place at the 2015 Symposium and take advantage of some early booking discounts.
The dates for the 2015 Pre Hospital Trauma Symposium have been announced – the 15th and 16th April. We will be running the Symposium at our head-office up at Brathay Hall, Ambleside.
We have a great line-up of speakers throughout the 2 days. There will also be workshops so you can get hands on with your trauma care and have a play with some new trauma equipment. A full programme can be found here.
It is being run by healthcare providers for healthcare providers with a view to making it as up-to-date and relevant as we possibly can to improve your knowledge and practice.
Evidence of attendance will be provided which can be used in CPD portfolios.
Bookings can be made here with discounts available for Early Birds, Students and College of Paramedic members.
We’ve been debating it for sometime and have decided to kick off a Blog. Just another way we can keep in touch with our followers. You’ll find us on social networks too.
We plan to use our Blog to keep you updated with our organisational stories, let you know what’s coming up, provide CPD opportunities and keep you up to date with medical and rescue affairs.
Feel free to comment on any Blog posts or if you have an idea of topics you’d like us to blog about contact us using firstname.lastname@example.org.
