Royal College of Surgeons of England sees training course win award

26th November 2010

The Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS) has announced that the Military Operational Surgical Training (MOST) course has been recognised with a prize for excellence.

Given the Department of Health Military and Civilian Health Partnership Award for education and training, MOST aims to ensure that reserve and regular military service clinicians are ready for a range of scenarios prior to their deployment to Afghanistan.

The course is a collaborative effort between the RCS, the Academic Department of Military Surgery & Trauma, the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine and the Joint Medical Command.

It uses military treatment processes and equipment to provide as much familiarisation as possible for specialists, so that learning in the field is minimal, said the RCS.

President John Black explained why this type of training outside of traditional procedure is essential.

"Surgeons currently deployed in Afghanistan face the daily task of treating military personnel suffering severe, complex injuries from bomb blasts or gunshot wounds," he commented.

Prior to the announcement, the RCS commented on a new comparative study showing that patients who undergo NHS heart surgery in England or Wales have a better chance of survival than most other places in Europe.

It said the results showed how much hard work had been carried out by cardiac units in recent years.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-800258967-ADNFCR
