The 10th Steering Committee (SC) meeting of the NATO Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine (MILMED COE) took place on 4-5 November 2013 in Munich, Germany, at the Deployment Health Surveillance Capability (DHSC), a satellite branch of MILMED COE.
This time the SC, chaired by Brig. Gen. István Szabó, commander of the HUN Defence Forces Health Centre, discussed and voted mainly on budgetary issues. Besides representatives of the seven Sponsoring Nations of MILMED COE, representatives from Belgium, Great Britain and the United States of America were also present - nations currently in joining process. Furthermore a member of the Allied Command Transformation (ACT) Medical Branch attended the meeting as well.
Ensuring quality - MEDEVAL
MILMED COE's Medical Evaluation (MEDEVAL) Course took place on 14-18 October 2013 in Budapest, Hungary, with the participation of 17 students and 6 instructors from 11 different nations. We were happy to welcome participants from not only NATO nations, such as Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy, The Netherlands, Portugal or Spain, but also from partner nations, like Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan or Sweden.
The overall aim of the biannually organised MEDEVAL course is to provide students with the appropriate skills to be able to evaluate medical modules. Participants of the MEDEVAL course were divided into syndicates for the table-top and live exercise. During the first three days of the five-day course, students familiarized themselves with the theoretical aspects of medical evaluation through syndicate tasks, such as the AMedP-27 Medical Evaluation Manual (MEM) and its usage. On Thursday, a live exercise was organised at the Medical Training Centre of the Hungarian MoD Military Hospital, where participants had to evaluate a dental, a surgical and a patient evacuation coordination cell module within the framework of a simulated scenario of a multinational ROLE 3 Medical Treatment Facility (MTF).
Preparing for major incidents
The Major Incident Medical Management and Support (MIMMS) Course was organised by the NATO Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine (MILMED COE) on 8-10 October 2013. The course was held in Budapest, Hungary with the participation of 21 students from 11 nations.
The aim of the biannually organised MIMMS course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively manage the scene of a major casualty incident in a military environment. The 3-day-long course consists of lectures, table top and practical exercises familiarizing the students with the CSCATTT (Command; Safety; Communication; Assessment; Triage; Treatment; Transport) procedure.
