UK: Military Medics Show Their Mettle

first_img View post tag: military Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: Military Medics Show Their Mettle An explosion rips through the hull of the merchant vessel, critically wounding six members of the crew. Two are in danger of losing limbs, another can’t breathe, and a fourth has deep burns across his chest.The casualties are flown to the nearby RFA Cardigan Bay, where the specialist military medics, doctors and nurses of the Joint Role Two Medical Team (JR2MT) are waiting.For the team members, this is a high-pressure situation where life and limb are on the line. The scenario may be fictional, and the casualties may be actors, but the responses and reactions have to be perfect.Best known for their role in the field hospitals of Afghanistan, the JR2MT are keen to show that they can work anywhere in the world.To prove this, as part of the International Mine Countermeasures Exercise 2013 (IMCMEX 13) they are conducting a Mass Casualty Exercise – a simulated incident with numerous serious injuries.A specialist make-up artist and two professional actors from Amputees in Action have been brought in to add even more realism to the scenario, and to put the surgeons of the JR2MT to the ultimate test – an amputation at sea.The aim of the Mass Casualty Exercise is to prove that the JR2MT can operate from the medical facilities aboard RFA Cardigan Bay, and her sisters Lyme Bay and Mounts Bay.“Three of our platforms are Bay-class ships, but we’ve never deployed on one before,”explains Surgeon Commander Richard Heames, the Officer in Charge of the JR2MT.“As a result, our first main training aim is to validate ourselves in our ability to operate from this type of ship and deal with patients using the facilities on board.“We’re also here to provide support to the IMCMEX, offering real world cover to everyone involved.”18 members of the JR2MT are living and working aboard RFA Cardigan Bay during IMCMEX 13, which has been taking place in the Middle East. It is the largest exercise of its kind in the world, bringing together personnel, ships and other military assets from over 40 countries.The Mass Casualty Exercise takes place over two days, allowing time for a realistic simulation of both the merchant vessel incident and a ‘mine strike’ aboard a minehunter – a scenario which involves multiple ships, helicopter and boat movements, and a great deal of coordination.By involving the two casualties from Amputees in Action, the medics are able to practise with far more complicated ‘injuries’ than they can normally train on realistically.John Pickup, director of Amputees in Action and one of the simulated casualties, said:“This is the first time we’ve trained with the Royal Navy, and it’s been a great experience all round.“We do lots of work with the Armed Forces and Emergency Services. The reality of our injuries enables us to play very real, but simulated, casualties and provide a realistic level of training that a lot of people wouldn’t normally be exposed to.”For one of RFA Cardigan Bay’s First Aid team the chance to participate in such a realistic exercise put all her skills to the test. Leading Hand (Administrative Assistant) Jacqueline Todd said;“I’ve dealt with broken bones before, and that’s what I had on the first day of the exercise, however the amputee casualty was something new.“When he came off the helicopter, I didn’t stop to think about how gory and realistic the injury was. I just remembered my training, and knew I had to get a tourniquet on to stop him bleeding.“He came up to me afterwards and thanked me for my efforts, telling me that if I’d done what I did for real I would have saved his life. I asked him how he knew, and he said ‘Because you tied it really tight!”The team also had to work seamlessly with RFA Cardigan Bay’s embarked medical team, the command structure for the exercise and in collaboration with a smaller medial facility aboard the assault ship USS Poncé.Leading Naval Nurse Lesley Robinson is one of the JR2MT’s trauma nurses, and found herself in the thick of the action once the casualties started coming in. She said:” Everything came together during the exercise. We were able to deploy and set up out here within 48 hours, and during the scenario everything went really well.“The Amputees in Action and the makeup all add a huge sense of realism to the trauma cases we have to deal with.”Surg Cdr Heames congratulated his team, as well as the staff from RFA Cardigan Bay and USS Poncé, saying:“The Mass Casualty Exercise has been successful in developing the medical care process from point of injury, through life-saving surgery aboard RFA Cardigan Bay, and onward transfer to hospital.“Once again, members of the Defence Medical Services have risen to the challenge of delivering an exceptionally high standard of medical care, this time in the unfamiliar maritime environment.”[mappress]Press Release, May 30, 2013; Image: Royal Navy May 30, 2013 View post tag: Medics View post tag: their View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navycenter_img View post tag: Mettle Training & Education View post tag: Defense UK: Military Medics Show Their Mettle View post tag: show View post tag: Defence Share this articlelast_img read more

Cohen named dean of Radcliffe

first_imgLizabeth Cohen, an eminent scholar of 20th-century American social and political history and interim dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study since last July, has been named dean, Harvard President Drew Faust announced today.“Liz Cohen is a distinguished and imaginative scholar with a deep knowledge of Radcliffe and Harvard and a strong dedication to Radcliffe’s pursuit of new ideas and collaborations across the academic disciplines, the professions, and the creative arts,” said Faust in announcing the appointment. “She is an experienced academic leader with a talent for nurturing creativity and spurring cooperative effort, and as interim dean she has already strengthened Radcliffe’s ties to people and programs across Harvard and beyond. Her wide span of intellectual interests, her spirited curiosity, and her incisive intelligence promise to serve the institute well.”“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study to further success in its mission to create and disseminate bold new thinking in the humanities, sciences, social sciences, and the arts,” said Cohen. “In my eight months as interim dean, I have learned how much the institute has to offer — advancing the research of Harvard faculty and students, providing intellectual invigoration to our interdisciplinary fellows, sustaining the world’s preeminent research library on the history of women, and pursuing programs to share this wealth of new knowledge with wider audiences close to home and increasingly around the world.“I like to think of Radcliffe as Harvard’s front door — open and welcoming to all who seek intellectual nourishment and creative inspiration.”Cohen joined the Harvard faculty in 1997 as a professor of history and was appointed the Howard Mumford Jones Professor of American Studies in 1999. Since coming to Harvard, she has served in a variety of academic leadership roles, including chair of the History Department, director of the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, and co-chair of the Common Spaces Steering Committee. She co-chaired the Harvard College Curricular Review’s working group on pedagogy in 2003-04, and she served on the Harvard Task Force on Women Faculty in 2005. She was a Radcliffe fellow in 2001-02.Much of Cohen’s influential scholarship has probed the connections between Americans’ social and cultural experiences and their political orientations over the course of the 20th century. Her writings range widely from urban, social, and political history to popular culture and the built environment.She is the author of “Making a New Deal: Industrial Workers in Chicago, 1919–1939,” which won the Bancroft Prize in American History and the Philip Taft Labor History Book Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Her book “A Consumers’ Republic: The Politics of Mass Consumption in Postwar America” explores how an economy of mass consumption shaped social life, culture, and politics following World War II. She has published widely in leading history and urban studies journals, and her writings have also appeared in edited collections and such popular venues as The New York Times, the Washington Post, The American Prospect, and the Boston Herald.With David Kennedy, Cohen is co-author of a widely used U.S. history college textbook, “The American Pageant,” now in its 15th edition. Cohen’s current book project, “Saving America’s Cities: Ed Logue and the Struggle to Renew Urban America in the Suburban Age,” considers the benefits and costs of strategies to rebuild U.S. cities through the life and career of urban redeveloper Edward J. Logue.Cohen received her undergraduate degree from Princeton and her M.A. and Ph.D. in American history from the University of California, Berkeley. She served on the faculties of New York University (1992-97) and Carnegie Mellon University (1986-92) before coming to Harvard. Besides her Harvard appointments in history and at Radcliffe, she is an affiliated professor in the Department of Urban Planning and Design in Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, a core faculty member of the Real Estate Academic Initiative, and a member of the higher degree committees for the programs in the history of American civilization and in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning.A longtime member of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) Standing Committee on Women, she has additionally served on the Tanner Lectures Committee, the Social Sciences Chairs Council, the History Department Planning Committee, the FAS Resources Committee, the FAS Faculty Council, and administrative committees for the Charles Warren Center and the Center for History and Economics.Cohen’s teaching has ranged widely from survey courses of post-World War II America to more-focused classes on topics such as Boston’s urban history.Cohen has been awarded fellowships by the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the American Council of Learned Societies. In 2001, she served as president of the Urban History Association. During the 2007-08 academic year, she visited Oxford as the Harold Vyvyan Harmsworth Professor of American History.In a letter announcing the appointment, Faust expressed her gratitude “to the many people who offered advice on the search and, especially, to the 14-member faculty advisory group, whose insights were invaluable to the process.”“The Radcliffe Institute was my first Harvard home,” she wrote, “and I know from experience what an important role it has to play — within and beyond the University — as a hub for innovative and influential scholarship and as a crossroads for thinkers and practitioners from different domains. I hope you will join in welcoming Liz Cohen as Radcliffe’s dean and in helping the institute fulfill its vital role in the world of ideas.”last_img read more

Argentina and Mexico to produce AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine

first_imgMexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said later on Twitter that the deal had been pushed by Fernandez and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. He said output of the vaccine could extend to 250 million doses.AstraZeneca, Britain’s second-largest drugmaker, has long operations in Argentina. The company signed a deal with the foundation of Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim for production of the vaccine, which is expected to be delivered in the first half of 2021, pending Phase III studies and regulatory approvals.Mexico would provide more details on the agreement on Thursday, said Ebrard, who thanked the Slim foundation for financing production.Fernandez said the deal “gives Argentina the peace of mind of being able to have the vaccine when required and at a reasonable price.” Argentina and Mexico will produce the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine for most of Latin America, Argentine President Alberto Fernandez said on Wednesday after a meeting with company executives involved in the project.An agreement signed between British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca and the biotechnology company mAbxience of the INSUD Group includes transfer of technology to initially produce 150 million doses of the vaccine to supply all of Latin America with the exception of Brazil, the Argentine government said.”Latin American production will be handled in Argentina and Mexico and that will allow timely and efficient access for all countries in the region,” Fernandez said. Argentina, which has passed 5,000 coronavirus fatalities, posted a record daily number of COVID-19 infections on Wednesday with 7,663 new cases. There were more than 200 fatalities over the previous 24-hour period.”This will provide great relief in the future, but it is not a solution for the present,” added Fernandez, pointing to the growing numbers of infections and fatalities. center_img Topics :last_img read more

Mandate roundup: Hampshire Pension Fund, RPMI Railpen, Northern Trust

first_imgThe fund is hoping to attract at least five managers to the three standalone tenders, with managers asked to submit all responses by 1 July.According to the fund’s most recent annual report, it had £175m in private equity holdings at the end of March 2014, a further £136m in hedge funds and an estimated £106m in infrastructure assets.In other news, Norwegian public broadcaster NRK is looking to launch a defined contribution (DC) pension scheme.The broadcaster currently maintains a defined benefit arrangement with DNB Livsforsikring, which has more than 4,000 active members but will launch a DC fund by the beginning of 2016.Any pension provider interested in acting as the DC scheme for NRK must have at least an A rating from Standard & Poor’s or an A3 rating from Moody’s, with at least three large Norwegian companies as clients at present.Interested parties have until 26 June to submit proposals.Lastly, RPMI Railpen has chosen Northern Trust as its provider of investment operation outsourcing.The in-house manager for the £21bn Railways Pension Scheme said the move was part of a shift towards the in-house management of assets, with Northern Trust selected to provide trade matching, derivative processing and active collateral management services. The UK’s £4.5bn (€5.4bn) Hampshire Pension Fund is to outsource its investments in hedge funds, private equity and infrastructure, accounting for just shy of 10% of all assets.In a tender notice, the local authority pension scheme said it wished to continue investing in the asset classes, but that it would pick one or more asset managers to oversee the portfolios rather than manage them internally.To this end, it is tendering three 10-year contracts worth a combined £30m to act as the fund’s infrastructure and hedge fund manager, as well as oversee its private equity and illiquid assets.  Although the contracts run for 10 years, Hampshire said it would review them after five years and consider whether it wished to maintain the relationship.last_img read more
