“T4 – Travel, Trauma, Tropics, Tactics”
Training in health medicine and medical emergency – general edition.
6-7 May 2017, Krakow
What do you do when you get diarrhoea in Kenya? How do you respond to a snake bite in Uruguay? How do you cope with hypothermia in the high mountains of Nepal? How to manage haemorrhage on a trip to Cambodia? Are you looking for answers to these questions? You will find them during the T4 training organised by the Polish Medical Mission.
The training will be conducted by experts in the field of medical emergency services and aeromedical evacuations as well as TCCC instructors.
The Polish Medical Mission is holding a course called “T4 Travel, Trauma, Tropics, Tactics: Selected Issues of Travel Medicine and Rescue Services.” This is an original programme created by the Polish Medical Mission’s instructors based on international guidelines and current recommendations, as well as the rich mission experience of the PMM’s volunteers and employees.
This edition of the course has been prepared for people who intend to travel to various corners of the world and want to get ready for the perils lurking there. Picking up diseases while travelling, proceedings in the case of a bite, allergic reaction, basic wounds and injuries or in ‘active shooter’ situations are just some of the issues that will be included in the course. During the training, the participants will find out how to prepare themselves for the trip, what to take with them and how to react in various health and life’s emergencies.
