IMPRESS solution presented to emergency professionals and post-graduate students
KEMEA presented to an audience of emergency professionals and post-graduate students the concept of IMPRESS and the relative solution designed for managing and organize information and data in context of multi-casualty incidents and large disasters. The presentation was included in the program of a training event that took place in the Library of the Medical School of Athens the dates 19 and 20/2/2016 and it was linked to the postgraduate program of the Faculty of Medicine, titled “International Medicine / Health-Crisis Management”.
The attendees of the event expressed their interest concerning the project and the potential interaction with the post-graduate course of the Medical school. The participants of the program expressed their interest to use mock-ups of the solution and training material that will be produced and delivered by the project when this will be available.
It has to be noticed that the envisaged postgraduate program adopts, in the courses provided, the US EMS structure as eventual Health Emergency Management System since this is the formal organization plan for Greece. Thus the participants found quite relevant and efficient the approach defined by IMPRESS consortium.
The presentation opened opportunities for future interaction between the Post-Graduate program of the University of Athens and the IMPRESS consortium.
