Deployed Medical & Healthcare Delivery Conference

London, United Kingdom

Medical Support to the Future Battlefield - From Doctrine to Delivery

Organised with the support of Defence Medical Services, UK MoD, Deployed Medical and Healthcare Delivery is the flagship opportunity for clinicians, organisational thinkers and capability planners to drive clinical delivery for the battlefield of the future.

As doctrine adapts to meet the peer threat, the military medical community must improve capability across the Operational Patient Care Pathway - from point of injury through to definitive care. DMHD will be the only conference to look across that pathway, with a three day programme that ask how clinical care can be delivered in accordance with accepted clinical timelines, on a less dense battlefield and with insecure lines of communication.

In 2020, the conference moves to its natural next phase, seeking to identify the technology which will support that change in practice, and to accelerate the application of innovation across the Operational Patient Care Pathway. Our starting premise remains the same: individual advances in clinical care can deliver enhanced outcomes at specific points along that pathway, but their effects will not truly be felt unless other elements in the pathway can keep pace. The conference's mission is to support that overall improvement.

Why attend Deployed Medical & Healthcare Delivery?

  • Adopt an integrated approach to the Operational Patient Care Pathway to advance clinical delivery from point of injury through evacuation and on to definitive care
  • Access more skill, sooner by extending the role of the next generation combat medic, nurse and doctor, and assess the limits of using less highly-trained personnel to administer care in the deployed environment
  • Hold combat casualties further forward, for longer, by accessing critical resources at point of need and improving the accuracy of pre-hospital assessment and diagnosis
  • Join over 100 military and civilian medics at a conference, including clinicians responsible for testing medical innovation on the frontline. Enhance medical support to the future battlefield - from doctrine to delivery.
