Barcelona EUSEM presentations given by Lincoln Medical School students Jade Livingstone and Jasmine Kirk

CaHRU staff supervised two University of Nottingham Lincoln Medical School students, Jade Livingstone and Jasmine Kirk, to successfully complete their BMedSci research projects. Over the past year, CaHRU, Jade and Jasmine have collaborated with Lincolnshire Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance (LNAA) to produce two pieces of research into outcomes for trauma patients attended by the helicopter emergency medical service. Their abstracts were accepted for presentation at the European Congress for Emergency Medicine 2023. This annual conference hosts over 3,000 professionals, sharing new and groundbreaking developments in the field of emergency medicine. The EUSEM conference facilitates networking between delegates from around the world. This year, the congress was hosted in Barcelona. 

Jasmine spoke about factors that increase risk of mortality in trauma patients attended by the air ambulance in her oral presentation. “Presenting my research abstract at the EUSEM conference was a fantastic experience. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my findings to other professionals and researchers in the field of Emergency Medicine. This is a specialty I am very interested in, particularly Paediatric EM. I was able to network with other medical students and junior doctors which was inspiring and enlightening. Beyond the conference, I had a wonderful time in Barcelona, exploring the local cuisine and immersing myself in the vibrant culture. This was an unforgettable trip that combined professional growth with personal enjoyment.”

Jade gave a poster presentation on factors affecting mortality in head trauma patients in LNAA. “I was delighted to have the chance to present my research at the EUSEM conference in Barcelona. It was an amazing opportunity to network with academics and professionals working within Emergency Medicine and it allowed me to delve deeper into a specialty that I am particularly fascinated by. Additionally, attending presentations from other academics gave me an insight into the intricacies and the broad variety available in multiple fields of research. I’d like to thank CaHRU and the team at the Lincoln Nottingham Air Ambulance for all of their support for making this possible and for assisting me with the publication of my work in the Emergency Medicine Journal.”

The conference has been a fantastic educational opportunity for our medical students and will further their professional development for the future.
