BACK TO THE FUTURE CONFERENCE
BASICS & THE FACULTY OF PRE-HOSPITAL CARE CONFERENCE
Copthorne Hotel, Dudley 11 – 12 October 2013
Briefly reviewing the origins of pre-hospital care in the UK, learning about recent research and advances and looking forward to future roles for all of us who share this exciting interest is the aim of this conference.
You will hear how pre-hospital care continues to develop in areas of research, practical procedures and broader clinical management. We will look at future roles for both the traditional practitioner and those going through formal pre-hospital training, and how we will work together both as individuals on scene, and organisationally as BASICS and the Faculty of Pre-hospital Care.
We have a programme that will interest practitioners at all levels of qualification and experience.
An important innovation this year is the inclusion of sessions specifically for first responders and first aiders, looking at airway management, history and handover and issues of scene safety.
Students of all disciplines are invited to make presentations and compete for a prize generously donated by the Faculty of Pre-hospital Care. Trauma management skills can be practised under the eyes of BASICS Education instructors, and the latest techniques in entrapment management can be discussed.
Exhibitors will be present throughout the conference, contributing further to the aim of ensuring we are all aware of latest developments.
We have structured the programme to present a mix of subjects sufficient to provoke interest and debate as well as learning from the wide range of experts, so that everyone can leave having learned something to enrich their practice, as well as having renewed friendships and acquaintances. We look forward to seeing you there. Click here for the booking form or book online.

The British Association for Immediate Care has championed the development of pre-hospital emergency medicine since it was formed in 1977.
Today we are forging strong working relationships with our colleagues in BASICS Scotland and the Faculty of Pre-hospital Care so that together we can provide the highest quality of medical knowledge and skill to those who need it most, and all at the accident scene, day or night, fair weather or foul.
The members of this Charity blend in amongst the paid Emergency Services, working together as a team. Whether you wish to join, or merely learn more then read on.

We also have a "Press Information" section with background information on our work and the incidents we meet. This is intended as a resource for those with a deadline to meet.
