This year, in collaboration with the Robert Gordon University (RGU), the Institute of Remote Health Care (IRHC) annual conference will focus on the practical aspects of redesigning remote healthcare delivery and clinical support from an international perspective. As such, the conference presents an invaluable opportunity to engage in a topical and wider debate that extends beyond the Energy and Maritine Industries about how best to address the contemporary challenges facing remote healthcare practitioners and service providers. It will showcase these challenges using clinical case studies and interactive workshops along with presentations from experts in the field of remote healthcare delivery and clinical support thereby ensuring the applied relevance to a diverse range of key stakeholders including: Remote Healthcare Practitioners; Occupational Health and Safety Professionals; Topside Service Providers; Education and Training Providers, and Emergency Planners and Responders.

This international conference has attracted influential speakers from a variety of organisations including the: Scottish Centre for Telehealth & Telecare; Radio Medico [Norwegian Centre for Maritime Medicine]; Shell International; XstremeMD [USA]; UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency; March on Stress, Centre for Global Health [Trinity College, Dublin]; gs partnership ltd, Ministry of Health [Government of Greenland], and NHS Scotland. Topics covered are dedicated to addressing key challenges associated with redesigning effective models of clinical support and identifying key drivers for effecting change in delivering healthcare in rural, remote and extreme remote environments.

In association with the conference, the IRHC Executive Committee will, for the first time, honour individuals and teams working in rural, remote and extreme remote areas who have made a significant contribution to helping promote and save life in the face of adversity in respect of five categories: [BASICS Responder(s); Offshore Medics; Ambulance Service Paramedic(s) or Technician(s); HM Forces Medic(s) and Mountain Rescue Member(s)]. The winner of the award for each category will be announced at the Conference Dinner on Wednesday, 11th September 2013 at Mercure Aberdeen Ardoe House Hotel, and their respective citations will be publicly read out along with a brief video/PowerPoint presentation prior to receiving their engraved award.
