Three work packages are dedicated to the three pillars of the project: acute care of the patient (WP3), acute care operations in security related incidents (WP4), and training of personnel (WP5). The activities undertaken in the three pillars will be supported by the networks and the advisory board (WP2), the analysis of the ethical human, social and legal issues (WP1), the innovation, standard and procurement activities (WP6) and disseminated by WP2.
