Motorsport Medicine Incident Management Course

Partnering with the Hong Kong Automotive Association, HKJCDPRI organised a training "Motorsport Medicine Incident Management Course" for medical incident first responders, involved in the 2016 FIA Formula E Hong Kong Station race event held on 8 and 9 October 2016. Two identical courses were held on 24 September and 1 October 2016 with a participation of 80 medical emergency first responders.

The course covered four main areas from trackside care, ambulance care, extended medical care in motorsport medical centre, to command and coordination. Field medical procedures simulation and XVR game-based learning on crisis leadership, decision-making, and communication skills were carried out during the course. Facilities at the Hong Kong Jockey Club Innovative Learning Centre for Medicine (HKJCILCM) including the clinical simulation equipment and eXtreme Virtual Reality (XVR) were used during the training. The Virtual Reality Team of the HKJCILCM also provided support for the scenario design on XVR and during the training .

Due to the complexity of the circuit and relative lack of experience in motor racing medical support in Hong Kong, this pre-event simulation course proved to be invaluable to everyone involved at the race event. Participants had good feedback about the course, as the skills learnt could be practically applied at real scenarios.

HKJCDPRI will continue to provide similar training opportunities for preparation of emergencies during sports events in Hong Kong. HKJCDPRI hopes that with the experience accumulated this year, the standards of medical support in motor-racing can be enhanced.
