Dr Nathan Smith has been invited to give a keynote speech at the World Extreme Medicine Conference at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh from 18th – 21st November.
The World Extreme Medicine Conference provides a platform for inspiring medical minds to meet. They will challenge thinking, build bridges and introduce new ideas about medicine at its most remote and austere. The conference brings together four related medical fields in one arena: Pre-Hospital, Disaster & Humanitarian, Expedition, and Extreme Medicine, with experts in each field presenting the latest thinking and techniques and sharing their inspiring stories.
Nathan will provide an overview of a recent synthesis project on personnel selection, coping and stress-resilience, and reintegration-transition from extreme settings. The presentation will be supplemented with findings from his own research in this area, which has been published in leading international journals and presented at conferences around the world.
