With the easing of Covid restrictions the British Mountaineering Council and British Mountain Medicine Society are again combining to offer a weekend of Mountain Medicine Workshops.
Medical mountaineering experts will combine to offer workshops on topics such as: Altitude illness, use of hyperbaric bags, frostbite prevention and treatment, first aid kits, hand injuries, foot care, trips in the Covid Era, children in the mountains, nutrition, splinting, biting bugs, mountaineering with co-existing medical conditions, hypothermia management and care at road traffic accidents (a major risk on the way to the hills).
Each hour-long workshop will run several times over the weekend for groups of 6-9 people and will be geared to the knowledge needs of each group. We hope to see interested recreational climbers and hillwalkers, mountain leaders, instructors, guides and those planning trips abroad and in the UK.
This is a social as well as an educational event so have a chat to the experts over a beer and BMC BBQ on Saturday evening.
CPD points available from the BMGs, BAIML and Mountain Training Association.
This weekend will be followed by a one-day Hathersage symposium geared to those with a specific interest in Hillwalking and Mental Health on Monday 13th June.
Further details, booking information and prices will appear on the BMC website in the next few months.
