The ATACC Group has been advocating the importance of Interagency collaboration within the emergency services for over 20 years. Learning from one another, sharing best practices and methodology is key to ensuring better patient care throughout.
The ATACC Group will be supporting the Tactical Trauma Conference 2019 as both guest speakers and leading the tactical workshops advocating the importance of interagency collaboration and working together as a team.
The workshop involves more than 10 of our faculty and takes place on the Monday of the conference. It consists of short skill sessions and updates before a series of full-scale tactical exercises, with each one delivering a different aspect of terror-related operations, tactics, trauma and tactical medicine.
