In September, MILMED COE received in Budapest the first participants since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Two courses have been held back-to-back, covering several aspects including preparation, communications/ radio procedures, command and control and triage through series of lectures, skills stations, workshops, table-top exercises, Hospital Exercise (HOSPEX) and practical exercises without casualties (PEWCS).
The IV-MED course is designed to teach participants how to respond to medical emergencies involving radiation exposure/contamination and how to improve the treatment and care of the injured. The course consists of a combination of lectures, demonstrations and exercises.
It is a pleasure to announce the Force Health Protection (FHP) Event which will take place virtually in Munich, 3-4 November 2021. After having to cancel last year’s FHP congress we decided to conduct a smaller event in 2021 before returning to a regular congress again in 2022.
