Cliff Reid and Brian Burns are known world wide for their work in prehospital education, training and research, most notably at the Greater Sydney Area HEMS service.

We were fortunate to have them come visit at the REPEL course and they kindly agreed to give a talk each at Odense University Hospital.

Here’s Cliff’s talk with 10 lessons from his many years developing a world class HEMS training programme.
