MEDICAL MANAGEMENT AND FIRST AID

Description

First aid can be one of the main bottlenecks of emergency response; therefore, an effective Medical Management is key to the response in case of CBRNE events. Health services are a critical infrastructure that has to be prepared and resilient to CBRNE incidents and attacks. This means having plans, procedures, equipment, and trained personnel, on the one side, and a smooth cooperation among first responders and stakeholders on the other. An increasing number of research and innovation projects addressing the issue of medical management and first aid in the framework of CBRNE events, testifies to the growing need to find new and smart solutions in terms of materials, equipment, procedures, communication and general management.

The session is aimed at bringing together researchers and experts in the following fields:

  • Medical management and the role of medical management in CBRNE safety and security
  • Medical countermeasures: vaccines, antimicrobial and antiviral drugs, blood products and antibodies, devices including diagnostic tests
  • Triage
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Collective Protective Equipment (CPE)
  • Decontamination
  • Diagnostic and Surveillance
  • Biological emerging and re-emerging threats and Epidemiology
  • Dual-use
  • Chemical, Biological, Radiological threats to medical management
  • Hazardous materials – hazmat
  • Innovative materials for medical applications
