We warmly welcome you to SaMED’s pre-congress training, Winter Disaster Medical Management. Understanding the value of disaster management, we decided to organize a unique training for medical students to equip them with the skills necessary to handle these situations.
Based on the experiences gathered throughout the years by senior doctors and servicemen of Mountain Rescue Service, we have learned that the management of the medical effects of a disaster is one of the most difficult tasks to be performed by medical personnel. It requires specific knowledge, the ability to plan and organize a health system, adapted to the disaster situation and the professional skill to provide medical care of high quality in an austere environment.
On the 31st of January, the pre-congress training will start. This training is designed to consist of theoretical and practical work. First day would consist of 3 and a half hours of lectures that will give you the basic information about the management of Disaster Medicine. Oral presentation using pictures, videos and other type of visual presentations are intended to deliver core information, facts and principles about the topics.
On the second day, 1st of February, will consist of eight-hour long practical simulation of Disaster Risk Management in the mountain. With the help from the experts from Mountain Rescue Service, participants will be involved in a hypothetical situation that is based on a simplified “real world”. This will give you the opportunity to apply your theoretical knowledge in a safe and realistic setting, develop team working and critical thinking skills, and a systematic approach to problem solving.
It provides you with a number of skills which are important in the pursuance of disaster management:
The venue for the pre-congress training will be at the Hotel Saraj and Olympic mountain Bjelašnica.
