DiMiMED - International Conference on Disaster and Military Medicine
Coping with COVID - Combating the Catastrophe and Dealing with the Disruption
Time is moving forward relentlessly, and the New Year is losing its pristine appearance. Diaries and Appointment schedules are rapidly filling up. It is timely, therefore, to make provision and set time aside for important events occurring later in the year which should not be missed!
One such event is the 2020 DiMiMED Conference which again is scheduled to be held in Dusseldorf in association with MEDICA, the International Medical Trade Fair, on 16th and 17th November 2020.
For those who are not familiar with the Conference, DiMiMED is an important medical educational and information forum which is largely focused on the interface between Disaster Medicine and Military Medicine. Planning for the 2020 event is well underway and, following on from recommendations arising from the evaluation of last year’s Conference, the programme this year will include a module on Military and Civilian International collaboration in Disaster Operations. In addition, there will be sessions dealing with developments in treatment and diagnosis of Infectious Disease, CBRN, Mental Health as well as Disaster Medicine and Traumatology.
This comprehensive overview of developments in the Humanitarian and Military Medical world occurs against the backdrop of MEDICA, the leading international medical trade fair. Attending the DiMiMED also affords an opportunity to visit the trade fair and its consequent opportunity to “experience tomorrow’s healthcare market today!”
Early registration is advised.
