Research Fellow at the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine, Dr Hideo Tohira, has been awarded the prestigious Sophus Falck Abstract Award for his abstract ‘Risk of Representation or Death in Patients Discharged at the Scene by Paramedics’.
Dr Hideo’s abstract was accepted for presentation at the International Conference in Emergency Medicine in Cape Town in April. It was one of 96 pre-hospital abstracts that was evaluated by the Falck Foundation’s Medical Advisory Board, and it was deemed the ‘most outstanding’. The Falck Foundation is a non-profit organisation with the express purpose of supporting pre-hospital research via research grants, abstract awards and pre-conference courses.
Dr Tohira will be presented with the award at the closing ceremony of the conference on Thursday 21 April 2016.
