The Impact of the Health Care System in War Trauma Scenarios,
We are honoured to have Dr. Bai Feng-Cheng, who’s a Primary Care Physician from the Tri-Service General Hospital, Department of Emergency Medicine, to give us this wonderful presentation.
If war begins, no one can really stay out of it, and frontline personnel who are under high pressure face physical and mental deprivation and repeated shocks:
▶Command – Linking Regional Chain of Command for Healthcare Defence into a collaborative and supportive partnership.
▶Safety Liaison – When attacked by enemy fire, how to maintain a parallel and vertical link between the hospital and the outside world, how to maintain the resilience of the chain of care.
▶Finance and Administration – Familiarise yourself with the hospital structure, scheduling and co-ordination operations through regular scenario planning.
▶Execution – Trauma Care (Surgery), Haemostasis/Vascular Intervention (Radiology), Trauma/Psychiatric Disorders (Level II), Infection/Infections (Medicine), Multiple Injuries/Major Injuries (Common), the biggest tests are ‘Trauma’, ‘Infection’ and ‘Psychiatric’.
▶ Planning (important) – pragmatic, flexible response, understanding of regional joint defence and spatial deployment, sharing of resources, must be undertaken by a ‘specialist’ who understands the clinical and hospital structure.
▶ Logistics – Understand the operation of the logistics chain, analyse and strengthen the current situation of pharmacy, blood bank, health care, energy facilities and transportation.
