The next meeting, which I will be chairing, will cover three varied incidents – and offers a great insight into the difficult and challenging decision-making required in the prehospital environment… and a chance to learn from each others’ perspectives. We’ll be covering a major incident, an isolated acute coronary syndrome case from remote Scotland, and the difficulties of dealing with a sudden death in a rural community.
Chris Moultrie will be updating us with incidents logged into the SPHERE system, and John Ferris will be imparting his latest prehospital care wisdom, apparently in the form of seven pillars!
These meetings – held quarterly – tend to attract more than 20-30 responders from across Scotland, and on this occasion we hope to be joined by crews from the new Search and Rescue helicopter facility in Inverness, who many of us will get to know operationally over the next year.
This is a service for members of BASICS Scotland, and you can join by contacting the BASICS Scotland office in advance. All you need is a functioning webcam & microphone/speaker – and the BASICS office will provide details on how to join the meeting by Adobe Connect (a form of videoconferencing).
We hope to see you there – either to listen in the background, or in contributing your views! Don’t forget that you can listen to previous BASICS Scotland clinical governance meetings by logging into the website and looking under member benefits.
