Test your skills in an emergency scenario

How would you cope in a natural disaster, far from home, attempting to provide medical aid to a vulnerable population? This interactive two-hour session aims to reproduce an emergency situation, in which up to 50 participants join different stakeholder groups to replicate some of the issues and problems that arise in a changing environment.

The session is run by Doctors Worldwide, a charity launched by doctors in 2000 to respond to serious emergencies and disasters around the world, and also to help communities set up sustainable health services such as maternity clinics and hospitals. Find out more at www.doctorsworldwide.org.

Please note this session does not include a dedicated CPD certificate.
