MEDEVAC 2014 Conference

29 October, 2014 - 30 October, 2014, London, United Kingdom

Medical Evacuation is changing.

With combat operations drawing to a close in Afghanistan, MEDEVAC teams will be required to operate in challenging new austere environments.

Interoperability will remain a core consideration for international cooperation, equipment and procedure standardisation. But how do we maintain training for MEDEVAC teams who are not regularly deployed to combat zones? And how can lessons learnt in Afghanistan be applied to future operations and exercises?

The third year of our MEDEVAC conference, fast becoming an established community event will bring together the leaders in the medical evacuation community to discuss the hot topics of 2014. Last year saw over 20 countries represented in high level presentations, discussion and interactive workshops.

What is new this year?

  • MEDEVAC 2014 will build upon last years discussions to explore:
  • Maximising capability through cooperation with other nations and upgrading equipment
  • Optimising training and maintaining core skills with changing operating environments
  • A look back on lessons learnt from Afghanistan and a look towards the new challenges to be faced

Join leading military medical officers outlining their future requirements and current challenges surrounding medical evacuation and in-theatre care such as the standardisation of equipment, the allocation of resources and the modernisation of medical equipment and medical evacuation platforms.
