Medical Support to the Future Battlefield – From Doctrine to Delivery
Organised with the support of Defence Medical Services, UK MoD, Deployed Medical and Healthcare Delivery is the flagship opportunity for clinicians, organisational thinkers and capability planners to drive clinical delivery for the battlefield of the future.
As doctrine adapts to meet the peer threat, the military medical community must improve capability across the Operational Patient Care Pathway – from point of injury through to definitive care. DMHD will be the only conference to look across that pathway, with a three day programme that ask how clinical care can be delivered in accordance with accepted clinical timelines, on a less dense battlefield and with insecure lines of communication.
Advancing pre-evacuation diagnosis and treatment, whilst critical, is not the only challenge. Aeromedical evacuation, integrated in the programme for the first time in 2019, is itself no longer viewed as an interlude between clinical care nodes, and represents a critical opportunity to apply innovation and drive up the standard of care. Our conference provides a rare opportunity for solution providers to hear from the decision makers and clinicians charged with caring for the future combat soldier, and for the military to ensure that their capability is integrated on the ground and in the air.

Why attend Deployed Medical & Healthcare Delivery?
Adopt an integrated approach to the Operational Patient Care Pathway to advance clinical delivery from point of injury through evacuation and on to definitive care
Access more skill, sooner by extending the role of the next generation combat medic, nurse and doctor, and assess the limits of using less highly-trained personnel to administer care in the deployed environment
Hold combat casualties further forward, for longer, by accessing critical resources at point of need and improving the accuracy of pre-hospital assessment and diagnosis
Bring forward surgical intervention by advancing the delivery of clinical care in the air, in order to support casualty stabilisation and treatment prior to arrival at a definitive care site
