Track 2 – EVENT MEDICINE & MASS GATHERING HEALTH
H: Mt. Currie Ballroom
Emergency Management Planning for Mass Gatherings and Event Medicine: A Tabletop Exercise - Dr. Adam Lund, Dr. Sheila Turris
The UBC Mass Gathering Medicine Interest Group will host an interactive workshop, rather than the standard podium approach, to presenting “7 Steps to Event Medical Direction”. In groups of 6-8, you will participate in a planning exercise for a major planned event, deploy your resources, then “play the game” to manage patients in the event medicine context.
- Analyze the context for providing an onsite medical response for major planned events
- Critically analyze common barriers and challenges associated with providing pre-hospital care in this setting
