One of the challenges for the emergency medical services in Lubelskie Voivodeship, Brest and Lviv Oblasts is to ensure the conditions enabling immediate reaction to life threats of residents living in the cross-border area. The difficulties they face relate mostly to disparities in the equipment, communication problems between the emergency medical teams, their insufficient qualifications as well as lack of joint procedures.
The RESCUE project aims at developing efficient cooperation between the medical services to improve healthcare accessibility in life-threatening situations. Within the project activities partners will purchase ambulances and specialistic medical equipment for hospitals in Tomaszów Lubelski, Hrubieszów, Žabinka and Sokal (including for example, first aid equipment defibrillators, electrocardiogram – ECG, ultrasound – USG, first aid training equipment). Furthermore, all partners will provide specialized trainings for approx. 250 members of medical staff, who in turn will pass acquired skills to physicians and nurses in their hospitals. First aid workshops will be conducted at schools, companies and during the field events to increase first aid skills among vast group of people.
Thanks to the RESCUE project beneficiaries will gain experience in organizing coherent actions in case of emergencies and will establish cooperation procedures. At the same time, the project will provide wider access to healthcare and will influence the awareness of local inhabitants.
