Safety and security incidents, such as terroristic attacks, armed conflicts, and infectious diseases may have an international, if not a global impact. Therefore, the response and management of these scenarios involves the coordination of a number emergency services and medical practitioners across countries.
Differences in organisational set ups, tools, decision-making processes, infrastructure and approach can result in poor emergency medical care. For example, the fragmentation of actors responding to security related incidents, lack of communication between practitioners and suppliers and lack of standardisation can lead to extended response times, which, in an emergency scenario, may mean loss of lives.
How can we improve Emergency Medical care across organisations both between, and within countries?
The NO-FEAR project will create a long-lasting pan-European network of practitioners, decision and policy makers, suppliers and academia to support emergency medical care by:
Trilateral works on enhancing the project findings by creating a network including first responders, emergency medical services, international and national health networks (e.g., WHO), policy makers, suppliers and volunteer services.
Trilateral will amplify NO-FEAR’s results, encouraging uptake of the NO-FEAR platform as well as collaboration and cooperation between practitioners, academia and industry, in order to improve emergency medical services and create synergies with existing European, national and sub-national networks of practitioners.
