This workshop/lecture will cover the essentials of coordinating & providing multicasualty incident (MCI) medical care in the wilderness.
The first day (virtual and in person) will review the basics of MCI management in the low-resource setting. This includes fundamentals of patient triage, the Incident Command System, resource management, and medical management of threats to life in the setting of severely constrained resources.
The second day (in person only) will include a 2-hour simulation of a wilderness MCI followed by a debrief with the faculty.
Participants should ideally already have previous hands-on training in wilderness medicine.
