A Look A DMAT Plus a Ukraine Training Update
In this episode we take a look at the DMAT deployment following Hurricane Ian in Florida. Gary Christmann from IDMC comes on the show to talk about Disaster Medical Aid Team (DMAT) and how it deploys. Then he shifts gears to join the show with nurse Alicia Bean. Alicia has worked as a registered nurse in several departments throughout the Chicagoland area ranging from ICU, PACU, Cardiac Cath lab to pediatric units.
The majority of her career has been in the Emergency department. Working along side Emergency medicine physicians, nurses, paramedics, and administration has given her a passion for all aspects of the emergency medical field.
Recently she has been privileged enough to join the International Displacement Monitoring Center (IDMC) team and the MedGlobal team in Ukraine. Alicia was privileged to work alongside the amazing STMI team in Ukraine and assess and train some of the extraordinary medical staff from Ukraine helping to broaden their knowledge in emergent and trauma care.
This episode is hosted by Jamie Davis and Sam Bradley.
