The REEC Conference allows the most important European countries to share educational projects, strategies, and protocols in the pre-hospital field, both civilian and tactical. The aim of the 2021 conference focuses on the safety of professionals, and the psychological risks during a rescue activity.
Among others, new educational standards in pre-hospital activity were highlighted by dr. David Page (MS, NRP, Director of the Prehospital Care Research Forum, California University, Los Angeles). Critical Thinking Stations improvements were explained by Dr. Aurora Guglielmetti. Attendees have also viewed the difference among countries in teaching PHTLS rules and learned more about education for the civilians using settings from the tactical field of operation.
An important chapter of the 2021 REEC event has been the intervention from EMERGENCY, which focused on how pre-hospital rescue can be adapted to helping populations in danger, during the mass-immigration situations.
