2017 Trauma Innovation & Military Medicine (TIMM)

In 2015, the DSEI Strategic Conferences hosted Trauma Innovation, delivered in partnership with the UK MOD Defence Medical Services (DMS). The conference looked at how lessons learnt from recent military campaigns can be translated into the wider healthcare community and those active areas of research where defence medicine continues to develop its clinical capability.

DSEI 2017 hosted an expanded medical conference programme, Trauma Innovation & Military Medicine (TIMM), encompassing 3 streams, led by the UK Surgeon General and DMS.

Surgeon General

“Building on the success of the Defence Medical Services (DMS) at DSEI 15, where our live exhibition demonstration won an Exhibition News Award, we are expanding the DMS presence at DSEI 17 to include three significant conferences.  My own conference, Triple Serpent, is exclusive to DMS and single Service medical personnel and has an appealing theme for today’s DMS: ‘Not just Bullets and Bandages – Building a Healthy Workforce’. 

International and external organisations are welcome to attend our other thought provoking conferences and displays.  Catch up with the latest Trauma Innovation ideas at our conference, which aims to focus on the far forward environment and determine how Defence can think outside of the box to break the mould of conventional thinking.  This year’s International Military Nursing Conference will concentrate on how the progressive integration of multidisciplinary practitioners is enabling a positive culture to gather evidence to shape quality improvements and in turn transform care in the UK and overseas.

These are fantastic opportunities to join the entire defence and security industry to see the latest equipment and systems innovations, and DSEI is a place where you can develop friendships and networks too.”

Surgeon Vice-Admiral Alasdair Walker, Surgeon General

  • "DSEI 2015 was the ideal occasion for the Royal Navy to demonstrate its ambition to lead and win through technological innovation. The opportunity to meet with so many partners from academia, industry and overseas at DSEI is, as always, a really useful component of our engagement with the vital partners through whom we seek to deliver this innovation."

  • "DSEI is a highlight within the defence calendar, I use it to find out what the most recent developments are in every technological area affecting for defence. Without DSEI I fear this sort of interaction, information exchange and knowledge of developments across all domains would be lost. DSEI is an invaluable international biannual event .”
    Rt Hon Dr Julian Lewis MP, Chairman, House of Commons Defence Select Committee
    UK Parliament
  • “DSEI is a fantastic showcase for defence companies where international buyers, sellers, developers, thinkers, educators and the trainers can all get together. The UK defence industry is looking to recruit more engineers, scientists and developers into 200,000 jobs and up to 10,000 apprentices within UK defence companies. DSEI is an excellent tool to highlight the challenges the industry face as well as showcase its capabilities domestically and overseas.”
    James Gray MP, House of Commons Defence Committee
    UK Parliament
