Pre-hospital emergency care practitioners have different job roles, practices, and challenges. But the risk of violence is one thing almost everyone has in common, even in peaceful settings.
In 2016 and 2017, the Geneva Learning Foundation partnered for the first time with the Norwegian Red Cross. Together, we worked with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to convene over 3,000 community-based ambulance practitioners from 110 countries. Together, they documented, analyzed, and peer reviewed 270 front-line incidents of violence.
This fall, we are inviting you to join this global Community of Action for three webinars, during which you and other practitioners will share stories, dilemmas and insights to make access to health care and its provision safer and better protected.
During the first webinar on 28 September:
- we looked together at what we have learned about patterns of violence affecting ambulance and pre-hospital emergency health services.
- we provided more information on how you can engage with the global Community of Action for Ambulance and Pre-Hospital Care Providers
The recording, presentation, highlights, and selected quotes from our first webinar are now available in the Health Care in Danger community. If you are not yet a member of the Health Care in Danger community, you will first need to create your account.
