Each year we finish the day of the Grand Finale fundraiser with a preliminary amount of money we collected in aid of our charity. The sum is preliminary because it is based on the estimated amount raised by our volunteers, our online auctions and other means of support.
Our joint project aimed to solve the systematic failures of medical first response system, and and in order to do so, we reached out to experts in the field. We decided to draw on the experience of editors of Medycyna Praktyczna magazine, which is a well-established, specialised publication for medical professionals. This magazine has been referred to us as a reliable reference. What is more, the publication has been providing successful courses for medical dispatchers, so naturally, we decided to draw on their expertise and use 'Code of Practice for Medical Dispatchers', published by Medycyna Praktyczna, as reference material for the working party.
The team of experts from Medycyna Praktyczna came up with a set of detailed steps, which became the basis for the updated medical interview. Each of the protocols pertains to a different scenario, and the step-by-step questionnaire allows to discern whether the case requires medical assistance on site.
