This will be the tenth BASICS Scotland conference, and a great programme has been planned – a day covering a wide spectrum of prehospital medicine, sandwiched between an interesting social programme. “This conference will change your practice” and it is hoped that the programme will appear to all types of BASICS responders across Scotland.
There will be opportunities to brush up on pre-hospital skills in some of the workshops, as well as discuss issues such as clinical governance. Dr Susan Klein will be speaking about professional and emotional resilience in responders, and Sir Keith Porter will be looking at “human factors” in decision making during emergency response.
There will be presentations from active responders, looking at all angles of providing BASICS-type emergency support. Professor George Crooks will open the conference programme.
