This article raises the old conundrum of time vs distance, to HEMS or not to HEMS, that is the question.
It would be interesting to see a study conducted in the U.K. to include other factors such as:
- The impact in time when transferring to landing sites away from hospital
- The impact from hospital delays in availability of ambulances for pick up
The Human Factors in Hazardous Environments course develops your knowledge and skills in the application of Human Factors (HF) principles in a variety of hazardous environments that you may encounter when providing care or rescue activities.
You learn through a mixture of online learning and a 5 day workshop where you will be “thrown in” to environments including:
- Water Rescue
- Working at Height
- Confined and Restricted Spaces
- Tactical Considerations
- Fire and Rescue Searches
We have a few spaces left on the course running 30th July – 3rd August but if you want to take part you’ll need to book by 20th July to allow time for the online activities.
