The DOCU/HELP support initiative in partnership with the charity foundation Soloma Cats invites Ukrainian documentary filmmakers to attend the All Service Members tactical medicine course.

 

The course is based on the full MARCH protocol approved by the TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care).

 

The course is about 9 hours long.

You will learn how to:

— examine survivors and prioritise injuries;

— identify and stop critical bleeding;

— apply tourniquets;

— tampon wounds;
