SW reviews the key points from the Pararescue Medical Operations Advisory Board. These include the way forward for HPO, issues of currency vs. readiness vs. proficiency. The importance of specialized Burn training, with opportunities in Washington and NYC. Affecting the med training and culture on the team by integrating POI care, tactical field care and TACEVAC into regular training at the DZ, range and boat party. Finally, SW reviews the rationale and positive pilot effort to use the deployment transition center as a third location decompression site.
This was really a well done brief by your PJ Med Programs manager.
