Emergency Training by AIM Group in Lampedusa

AIM Group International organised the second edition of the SIAARTI Academy CREM (Critical Emergency Medicine), a complex training event of the Italian Society for Anaesthesia, Analgesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care. The six-day event was held from 20th to 26th May in Lampedusa, a small island in the south of Italy.

The complex event included 35 hours of classroom training, 70 faculty members (teachers and speakers), 22 workstations and a maxi simulation lasting 10 hours and involving 300 people. The SIAARTI event involved important institutional partners such as the Coast Guard, the Italian Relief Order of Malta, Civil Protection and 118 (medical emergency service). Choosing a small island, usually not considered for congresses and events of high scientific value, has been a way to leave a positive legacy on the destination and local operators in terms of image and professionalism and economic development.

The innovative format for the first edition received several international awards such as the BEA World Award, the FCE Awards 2018 and the IAPCO Collaboration Award.
