Prehospital Trauma Education

This talk was presented at the London Trauma Conference in December 2014, by Dr Cliff Reid, Director of Training for Greater Sydney Area HEMS.

Dr Reid explains how the HEMS induction program is crafted, and how it has evolved to include simulation, stress exposure training, perturbation training, and cross training. He reveals how the team has striven to increase the physical, psychological, and functional fidelity of the simulations. He also explains the approach to testing, in which the performance of teams in the focus of assessment, rather than the knowledge of individuals. The ‘educational laboratory’ of HEMS induction is continually a work in progress.
