Welcome

"CHANGING TIMES - TIME FOR A CHANGE!"

Those of you who attended the 11th DiMiMED International Conference in Duesseldorf on the 13th and 14th November last year can testify to the success of the Conference. Hopefully, you will now have put into practice some of the ideas and concepts which you first learned about at DiMiMED, and your patients and/or organizations are reaping the benefits. But your educational opportunities do not end there!

The good news is that planning is well underway for the 12th DiMiMED International Conference which is scheduled for 11th and 12th November 2024 in Duesseldorf.  It is the aim of the Scientific Committee to ensure that DiMiMED is a conference “which keeps on giving” year after year!  This year’s theme of “Changing Times - Time for a Change” fall easily off the tongue, but don’t be misled by the simplicity of the wording! Changes are afoot in every dimension of life, not least in the worlds of disaster and military medicine, and these changes require an appropriate response.  The key to success in today’s world is to identify the change that is taking place, and to determine whether, in particular with regard to conflict medicine and medicine in poorly resourced or austere environments, the current response remains optimal.  

The structure of the DiMiMED International Conference is not immune to change either as we seek to respond optimally to the prompts of our audience in the feedback received after the 11th DiMiMED. We hope to introduce a Panel Discussion with panellists from both the military and humanitarian domains, and provide attendees with a mechanism to pose questions to the panel. Consideration is also being given to include a tour of MEDICA, one of the largest medical trade fairs in the world, in order to view innovation in medical products of potential relevance to the military medical, humanitarian, and austere medical worlds.  

In addition, and in line with tradition, we hope to have specific modules in Combat Medical Care, Disaster Medicine and the Humanitarian Perspective, Mental Health, Moving Points in Disaster and Military Medicine, and this year we will introduce a section on Force Fitness. And of course, there will be the usual Poster Presentation Competition.

So, mark up your diaries now - See you there!
