Medical Support Operations Conference

Challenge and Change to 2020 and Beyond

Tomorrow's operating environment will impose considerable demands on medical support capability. Future deployments must be able to function in ever more austere theatres, and ready to treat casualties of asymmetrical warfare, natural disaster and contagious disease.

To debate these challenges, Medical Support Operations 2017 will welcome personnel from the military, NGOs and international organisations, together with industry, to determine the critical solutions necessary to sustain operational effectiveness. Officially supported by the UK MoD's Defence Medical Services, the conference will feature high-level strategic discussions on future threats to health, while case studies from military and non-military partners will detail current attempts to improve both capability and interoperability. Innovations in clinical delivery, including telemedicine, will be crucial to a forum which recognises the need for rapid, cost-efficient and targeted medical care.

Why you should attend Medical Support Operations 2017:

  • Understand the major threats facing the future operating landscape, and identify the equipment and processes capable of delivering expeditionary care to your forces in the most austere environments
  • Develop a capacity for extended field care by designing future battlefield care pathways, and by adopting commercial solutions to improve telemedicine and deployed operational capability
  • Promote interoperability between government, military and non-government partners to build capability and enhance your ability to respond to humanitarian disasters
  • Explore crucial developments in medical logistics, in order to improve the supply of blood and other critical resources to tomorrow's battlefield
