Epidemiological Humanitarian Aid: data for evidenced based decision making in disaster and conflict medicine
My emergency medical work allowed me to also work in the UK while consulting for the Ukrainian World Congress and Liaison with the Ministry of Defense in Ukraine and NATO to make better the emergency medical services for warfighters in Eastern Ukraine. I am now a Middle Grade / Attending doctor in emergency medicine. I provide expert remote medical consult and direction, clinical guidance and governance, governmental liaison and support of emergency medical services and pushing public health and medical projects with international donors in Ukraine. I served as Medical Director for Medsanbat, a humanitarian Combat Medic program based in Kyiv and have drafted the Pre-Hospital medical guidelines and SOPs for the Ukrainian military and NATO forces supplying medical aid to ministries and humanitarian agencies. My day job remains emergency medicine in the UK. I love emergency medicine and public health; remote and pre-hospital medicine has been my way of life for over a decade. I will complete my PhD in winter 2016 with subject matter of epidemiology of fragile and failed states in conflict and war.
