Welcome to EMAS 2019,
As in previous years the College of Emergency Physicians, Malaysia is proud to host another event to commerate our service and showcase our achievements in the field of emergency medicine. We have grown from strength to strength and every year gaining increasing recognition from fellow colleagues in other disciplines locally and internationally for our contribution to an holistic medical care for the public we serve.
This year we give you mainly an insight of our PHC and Disaster activities and present to you also other advances in the field of emergency critical care, trauma care, toxicology, pediatrics among other special interest groups that have been developed to expand and consolidate our field of expertise in emergency medicine.
We have gathered experts from around the world and locally to provide you insight to the latest developments in the field of emergency medicine in an attempt to provide you an oppertunity to be educated and enlighted in the advances we have made since our existence in 2002.
This years theme ‘Building Capacity, Stengthening Cooperation’ provides you an insight to our common goal in the years to come to our commitment to ensure emergency medicine in Malaysia reaches to a level where the country can be proud and dependable towards our service. The goal of a one country one emergency department remains the aim in ensuring emergency care is available everywhere in the country, providing the same common standard of care for all.
By building capacity and strengthening cooperation with all other disciplines in medicine and fostering relationships with related non medical agencies is essential to reach our goal in the years to come.
During EMAS 2019, a concurrent event will also take place in the form of Parmedics Asia 2019 whereby paramedics and physicians alike mainly from our region in the field of pre hospital care will meet to share experiences and knowledge.
We hope to see you at EMAS 2019 in October and we hope to provide you with the knowledge, insight and experience for you to take home to help you develop and provide better emergency care for the public we serve.

By Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)
The Chemical Incident Preparedness for Hospitals (HOSPREP) Project aims to enhance awareness on the importance of chemical incident preparedness, response and recovery. Participants of this workshop will be able to identify gaps in chemical incident preparedness at their own health facilities and to prepare an action plan for chemical incidents at their facilities. The result will be improved capacity of participating medical facilities to withstand the complex demands of a chemical release scenario.
The program will be conducted by 5 speakers and instructors from OPCW , Ministry of Health Maalysia and Malaysia Fire and Rescue Department. It will include talks on the general principles and planning for chemical incidents, hospital emergency planning, Concepts specific to contamination scenarios, fundamentals of chemical toxicology and specific chemical hazards as well as chemical decontamination and demonstration.

EMS is essentially having its own ecosystem in healthcare environment. Within the ecosystem of EMS, there are two groups of professionals that work synergistically but with differing context for continuous education needs.
What excites paramedic? The next breakthrough in medicine or sharing of experience in patient care scenarios? The more difficult the clinical scenario the more excitement it generates within the paramedic community.
Thus, the introduction of Paramedic Asia 2019. The guiding principles of the conference is not sharing of clinical breakthrough, however creating a psychologically safe platform for paramedics to share their experience, innovation and news on things that matter more to paramedics.
Abstracts are welcome.
Since 2017, all the pre hospital care team from all over Malaysia will challenge their skills, knowledge and capabilities in the annual National Pre Hospital Care Championship.
