Bangor University joins forces with remote area medical care specialists to make a difference in field emergency and disaster situations


We are delighted to be working with Remote Area Risk International to help develop the practical methods and training they teach in their UK-leading remote medicine and prolonged field care courses. The work is particularly rewarding, knowing that course graduates go on to apply the knowledge and technical skills learned, to improve prehospital care and reduce mortality in resource-limited settings, like expeditions and disaster zones.

We were introduced to Sam by a trusted and very experienced contact within Mountain Rescue. The team at the Institute for Applied Human Physiology have huge experience in the subject matter in question. As with everything we do, the focus is on making a positive difference to those who need it, in extremis.
