Message from the Founder

Dr David Miller, Director of WMI Australasia

"Urban-based first aid courses are run on the assumption that an ambulance will come fairly quickly and people will be whizzed away. Wilderness Medicine covers a lot more issues. In a wilderness setting you are with the patient for a lot longer. You have to consider everything from their physiological wellbeing to keeping them warm and fed. 

You may need to decide whether to bail out and bring in help or whether evacuation will jeopardise others in the group. You might have to improvise because you may not have much to work with."
