President’s  foreword The   ideals   behind   ATMA   are   an   altruistic   desire   to   improve   patient outcomes   across   the   entire   spectrum   of   high   threat   and   tactical medicine.     This   means   ensuring   that   we   engage   and   represent   the   copper on   the   street   as   much   as   the   high   speed   PTG   operator,   the   medic supporting  field  operations  as  much  as  the  SF  doctor,  and  the  civilian  first aider  learning  haemorrhage  control  for  the  first  time  as  much  as  the  critical care   helicopter   paramedic.     I   feel   that   we   have   been   very   successful   in achieving  this  so  far,  and  have  laid  the  groundwork  for  an  association  that truly  belongs  to  the  members  and  represents  all  their  interests. To  ensure  that  we  continue  on  a  path  that  represents  the  interests  of  all  of our   members,   and   pushes   forward   the   capability   of   tactical   medical providers   in   Australia,   the   ATMA   executive   committee   has   identified   the   5   most   important elements  that  we  will  consolidate  over  the  next  3  years. These   5   elements   express   the   outcomes   that   we   will   strive   for,   representing   our   goals   of education,  advocacy,  advice  and  progression  of  capability  and  preparedness.    Never  forgetting that  the  end  goal  is  the  patient,  we  will  continue  to  harness  the  enthusiasm  and  expertise  of  all those  working  in  this  field  to  focus  our  efforts  and  build  a  team  that  is  greater  than  the  sum  of its  parts. We  appreciate  your  support  and  look  forward  to  working  together  to  achieve  the  outcomes  of the  ATMA  Strategic  Plan  2018- ‐20. Matthew  Pepper President Australian  Tactical  Medical  Association President,  Australian  Tactical  Medical  Association 4

Introduction This   strategy   provides   an   organisational   roadmap   for   ATMA   moving   into the   end   of   the   decade.   It   ensures   that   as   an   association,   we   are accountable  to  our  members,  the  general  public  and  any  other  private  and public  stakeholders. The  constantly  evolving  threat  context  within  Australia  means  that  there  is no  better  time  for  our  association  to  both  launch  and  plan  for  the  future. We   are   steadfast   in   our   commitment   to   represent   the   interests   of Australians  involved  in  the  provision  and  development  of  tactical  medicine across  the  spectrum  of  applications,  from  the  general  emergency  services response   to   high   threat   incidents,   right   through   to   highly   specialised providers  in  military,  police  and  other  special  operation  groups. As   such   the   ATMA   Strategic   Plan   2018   –   2020   has   been   developed   to ensure   we   meet   our   benchmarks,   continue   to   drive   the   progression   of   a tactical   medical   capability,   and   advocate   for   a   better   response   to   high threat  incidents  within  Australia. 5

Our  organisation Established   in   June   2017,   ATMA   was   born   out   of   a   recognition   that   a   capability   gap   exists   in   Australia   in   the provision  of  the  highest  standard  of  tactical  medicine.    Whilst  many  individuals  are  working  tirelessly  in  this  field in  their  own  pursuit  of  excellence,  the  heavy  weight  of  bureaucracy  has  prevented  open  communication  and synergism.     As   the   effective,   well   drilled   team   is   greater   than   the   sum   of   it's   parts,   so   too   ATMA   magnifies individual  efforts  to  better  protect  the  people  of  Australia  and  the  lives  of  those  who  put  themselves  in  harms way. International   models   of   tactical   medicine   have   evolved   significantly   with   the   lessons   learned   from   the battlefields  of  the  Global  War  on  Terror.    Clinicians  in  the  field  recognised  that  in  Australia  we  have  a  long  way to   go   to   catch   up,   and   this   Association   provides   a   collective   voice   and   pooled   experience   to   accelerate   this process. The   inaugural   2017   Australian   Tactical   Medical   Conference   brought   together   a   dedicated   group   from   Police Tactical   Groups,   Police   specialised   units   and   general   duties,   Military   SOCOMD,   Ambulance   and   Ambulance Special  Operations,  private  industry  and  Hospitals.    The  conversation  was  started  for  the  first  time  as  a  united force  on  information  sharing  and  collaboration  across  the  spectrum  of  high  threat  medicine.    ATMA  was  formed in  the  last  hours  of  the  conference,  and  continues  to  build  on  this  foundation. The  incredible  work  of  organisations  such  as  C- ‐TECC,  CoTCCC  and  SOMA  have  paved  the  way  for  widespread dissemination   of   evidence   based   high   threat   medicine   through   guidelines,   training,   conferences,   online materials  and  research.    The  same  model  sees  ATMA  as  the  premier  Australian  source  on  tactical  medicine. 6

Our  organisational  structure Our   organisational   structure   ensures   we   are   in   the   best   position   to   meet   our   five organisational  outcomes  into  the  end  of  the  decade.
