JP Loughrey chats us through lots of points about major incidents in this series of podcasts
Top 3 Points from this podcast:
- Communicate effectively, using a recognized framework for consistency (METHANE)
- Realistic Medicine is an accurate representation of what we should strive for, even in a Major Incident
- Practice, train, drill, tabletop – anything you can do to ensure you’ve looked at the plan and action cards and know the principles will help when the pressure (and stakes) are high.
