As part of a collaboration of non-governmental organizations and academic public health experts help the civilians of Ukraine, the ‘Save a Life: Ukraine Trauma Care Training Course’ videos were created to provide advanced medical training for medical staff and first responders in Ukraine. STRATUS facilities and equipment were used for filming many parts of these videos, with our operations team providing behind-the-scenes support.
The ‘Save a Life’ videos were developed to be accessible to both laypersons and medical professionals. The courses cover:
- Advanced Trauma Life Support
- Trauma Nurse Fundamentals
- Prehospital Trauma Fundamentals
- “Stop the Bleed”
- Mass Casualty Management
- Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive
This project was led by Dr. Eric Goralnick, Emergency Medicine Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School faculty, and was supported by the Clinton Global Initiative. Dr. Goralnick spoke about the ‘Save a Life’ campaign at the a Clinton Global Initiative retreat, after which President Bill Clinton tweeted about the project.
So far, twenty-four videos have been released, with more in development. To get the latest videos, subscribe to the International Medical Corps YouTube channel.
The collaboration that created these videos includes the International Medical Corps, the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, Mass General Brigham, Boston Children’s Hospital, the Global Medical Knowledge Alliance, and ELEMENT Productions.
