The event was opened with a keynote address by WMAS Chief Executive and Chairman of AACE, Anthony Marsh. Delegates then heard from over thirty top speakers including Professor Andy Newton, Chair of the College of Paramedics and Dr Nick Toff, from the Clinical Human Factors group.
A range of master classes were also held including topics as varied as female genital mutilation, obstetrics, mental health, burns treatment and sepsis recognition. Another popular session included: “Liquid to Air, The Change at Birth” with Dr Lee Abbott and contributions were well received from Professor Tom Quinn, Professor Sir Keith Porter, Dr Tim Kilner and Sarah Noble.
The Conference was hosted by WMAS, AACE and the College of Paramedics and supported by a host of sponsors and exhibitors. Conference organiser, Andy Rosser, said: “This year’s conference was the most popular we have organised so far with around 500 delegates making their way to Villa Park. The feedback I’ve received from delegates is that it was an excellent day with many interesting and thought provoking sessions. I would like to thank everyone concerned for the effort they put into the event. It was another great success.”
