PHOTON: Results of the TT-PHEA & HEMS Service Evaluation (WWN) Studies
Presented by Dr. J.Turner, Dr. H.Tucker & Dr. M.O'Meara
PHOTON is a trainee led research network undertaking multi-centre collaborative pre-hospital research and service improvement. We have two national projects currently underway, TT-PHEA & WWN, and we look forward to discussing the results of these and how you can get involved with our future projects.
The "Time to Pre-Hospital Emergency Anaesthesia" (TT-PHEA) project is looking at a number of factors influencing time to PHEA across the UK from April 2017 – April 2018. We will discuss our performance against the NICE major trauma targets, areas of excellent practice and where we can focus our efforts nationally to enhance care. The “Where are We Now” (WWN) project is a service evaluation questionnaire with the aim of gaining a better understanding of the pre-hospital critical care offered by HEMS in the United Kingdom. We have reviewed current practice throughout the UK to identify any trends in clinical practice and governance, and are excited to present our findings.
Dr Jake Turner is a West Midlands PHEM trainee with a base speciality of anaesthesia. He is the project lead for the TT-PHEA study and as vice-chair of the PHEM trainee association (PHEMTA) this allows Jake to represent PHOTON’s interests nationally with the support of PHEM trainees across the UK.
Dr Harriet Tucker is an ST6 EM/PHEM trainee based in London & Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex. She hopes to dual CCT in July 2018. She has recently started a PhD in the use of pre-hospital whole blood. She sits on the PHOTON and PHEMTA committees, both working to improve training, collaboration, knowledge sharing and research within the pre-hospital community, and is the project lead for the third PHOTON study on elderly trauma.
Dr Mathew O'Meara is a consultant in Trauma Resuscitation Anaesthesia and pre-hospital Care with UHNM. He flies for the Welsh EMRTS service and Essex and Herts Air Ambulance. He has been involved in pre-hospital care for 14 years. He conceived the idea for the study and is a consultant advisor to the PHOTON team.
