About this Event

Would you be interested in learning about wilderness medicine? This covers topics not normally seen in NHS paramedic practice, focusing on medicine in austere environments. This year we are aiming to run a series of events aimed at those with an interest in the outdoors.

The first 2 events will be afternoon sessions made up of talks followed by practical skills stations run at Oxford Brookes.

The first of these sessions will be held on Wednesday 2nd October 2019 12:30-16:30pm. This session will be will be delivered by 2 guest speakers who are experienced wilderness medics from Exile Medics. Dr Freddie Walker and Alex Grainge.

The structure of the day will be 2 x 1 hour long talks from our guest speakers, covering 'An Introduction to Wilderness Medicine' and some case studies focusing on heat illness and trauma. This will be followed by 4 x 20 minute practical sessions in small groups. These sessions will cover Heat Illness, Cold Illness, Improvised Splinting and Extraction Techniques, and Haemorrhage Control.

The afternoon sessions will be free to ParaSoc Members, and £4 on the door for non-members. Please follow the facebook event for more details and ticket release! The event is aimed at student or qualified Paramedics and HCPs. Tickets are limited so be sure to book if you would like to attend - and let us know if you are unable to so we can open up a space for someone else.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided, please bring your own cup to avoid using single-use plastics.
