A decade ago, the 60th World Health Assembly called upon member states to develop emergency care systems.  Since that time, many groups have heeded the call and sought to improve emergency care worldwide.  During this satellite session, we will bring together international leaders from academia, government, the non-governmental sector and public health development agencies to discuss advances in emergency care systems and outline a collaborative path forward to drive effective implementation strategies through research, education, and advocacy.
The session will focus on developing and furthering strategic partnerships to advance emergency care systems worldwide. Specifically, it will:
  • Give updates from WHO’s Emergency and Trauma Care program on progress towards goals outlined in WHA 60.22.
  • Outline WHO’s Emergency Care System Framework, especially as it relates to implementation of the Emergency Care System Assessment tool, Triage Tool, Trauma Care Checklist, Medical Care Checklist, Basic Emergency Care Course and Minimum Data Set for Emergency Care.
  • Discuss the framework for developing partnerships between academic centers, government and international agencies that will advance emergency care system development. This will include focus on emergency care, education, research and administrative efforts.
  • Give best practices for partnership development (WHO, ICRC, IFEM, Academic Medical Center Consortium).
The format of the proposed pre-conference session will be combination of short didactic presentations, panel discussions and small group working sessions. The goal will be to provide participants with concrete tools to continue the global health emergency systems development process at their respective institutions and in partner countries.
The primary outcome of the preconference session will be to continue to catalyze partnerships in the further developed of effective implementation strategies of the global mandate to improve emergency care systems worldwide.  The goal would be to author a white paper outlining the specific findings of the satellite session.
