MEDEVAC 2012 Conference
Project, Stabilise, Evacuate: Delivering a Swift and Effective Future Medical Evacuation Capability

6 November, 2012 - 8 November, 2012, London, United Kingdom

Severe challenges remain in projecting highly effective combat trauma care to front line forces and ensuring injured military and civilian personnel are swiftly and safely evacuated to medical facilities for enhanced care.

Our inaugural MEDEVAC symposium will bring together senior military medical officers to explore the challenges surrounding medical evacuation and in-theatre care, such as the standardisation of equipment, the interoperability of medical teams and their equipment and the modernisation of equipment and medical evacuation platforms.

MEDEVAC 2012 will provide a pertinent opportunity for the military medical community and industry partners to gain the information they need to confront the challenges facing our forces' greatest force multiplier

Highlights of MEDEVAC 2012:

  • Learn from the world's leading medical evacuation practitioners as to how they are advancing their forward, tactical and strategic evacuation capabilities
  • Gain an unparalleled insight into how challenges such as standardisation and interoperability are being confronted by air, land and military medical forces
  • Strengthen your knowledge of how medical companies are developing their technologies to better aid future medical evacuation missions in harsh operating environments

Post conference workshop: Mass Casualty Events and Medical Management Workshop 8th November 2012
Led by: Ms. Julie Benbenishty
1Z ICU Nurse, Hebrew Hadassah Hospital

Our expert mass casualty medical expert from the Hadassah Hebrew Hospital will be providing a dedicated look at how mass casualty events such as natural disasters or terrorist attacks should be managed and how a medical facility can successfully deal with MCE patient surges


I’m looking forward to the MEDEVAC conference. In times of a European Air Transport Command tasking NATO airborne MEDEVAC missions it is a chance to share experiences with colleagues from multiple NATO partners
Lieutenant Colonel Björn Hossfeld MD, Consultant, Anaesthesiology, Intensive Care Medicine, Emergency Medicine, German Armed Forces

MEDEVAC 2012 will be a great chance to learn about the valuable work that medical evacuation practitioners carry out and the challenges currently facing them and it will also be a pertinent opportunity to share my knowledge of mass casualty events with the audience

We need a joint effort and everybody’s experience to meet today’s challenges in advanced, tactical and strategic air-evac and the event will be a good opportunity to discuss these challenges

What Issues are driving the MEDEVAC Community?

MEDEVAC 2012 will be a platform for intelligent debate on the pressing issues facing this community, helping to build a unified vision for the future of medical evacuation:

  • How can medical equipment and personnel be standardised for future multinational operations?
  • How can militaries make better use of COTS medical technology for MEDEVAC missions?
  • How can flight surgeons’ clinical skills be increased to help better supervise and train flight medics?
  • How can outdated MEDEVAC staffing models be modernised for the 21st century?
  • How can the significant variability in the capabilities of units conducting rotary wing evacuation be reduced?
