Remote Island Medicine in the South Pacific

Lucille Chauveau

Dr Chauveau will describe her work as a remote Medic in French Polynesia – covering an archipelago of 118 islands spread over an expanse of ocean as large as Europe. She reflects on the unique challenges of treating people on islands like Maiao with only 350 inhabitants, which has no airport and a very infrequent boat service!

Her clinical work includes everything from the same minor trauma and common viral illnesses everyone sees in day to day practice right through to sick and complex patients for whom she has no access to imaging, labs or other tools to assist decision making.

Dr Chaveau will share her experiences, insights and tips on how to survive and thrive as a remote medic and explain why idyllic tropical islands can be just as austere in their own right as cold, polar and mountainous environments.

Dynamic Earth, 112 Holyrood Rd, Edinburgh, Aberdeenshire, EH8 8AS, United Kingdom

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
