Did you know that we take part in a project that creates an online collection of scenarios for training and research in military medical ethics?

Messelken.2018 MME Scenario CollectionICMM RevueThe aim of this MME scenario collection is to provide deploying military medical personnel and those who organise trainging and education with a tool to better prepare for future missions. In order to do so, we collect and make available cases, experiences, reports, and scenarios in a neutral database. In order for the colletion to grow, we hope that we can convince those returning from missions to (anonymously or not) contribute their experiences and share it with others.

If you want to learn more, the International Review of the Armed Forces Medical Services has published an article that describes the MME Scenario Collection. You can read the article online via the following links:

In early 2014, the ICMM Center of Reference for Education on IHL and Ethics was contacted by COMEDS and asked to provide an ethical analysis of the issues related to medical age estimation procedures. During the 4th ICMM Workshop on Military Medical Ethics held at Forum Lilienberg in April 2014, a first assessment of the topic was done with invited experts. Further research was then conducted within the ICMM Center of Reference, and a report was presented to COMEDS in November 2014.

Our current academic editorial sums up the results of our research undertaken to answer the initial COMEDS’ request and gives you an overview on the related ethical questions.
