Current Winner

AIM Group and SIAARTI win IAPCO Collaboration Award. The island of Lampedusa is not perhaps the first destination that springs to mind when looking for a training ground. However, it was to prove to be the host of a very special event, brought about by a collaboration between AIM Group International and SIAARTI, the Italian Society for Anaesthesia, Analgesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care.

SIAARTI was eager to find an innovative way to train its young members focussing on fieldwork. The island of Lampedusa was chosen as the most appropriate host, being a backdrop for migrant boat landings and major socio-sanitary challenges; well acquainted with human sufferings and known for its ability to handle emergencies. Collaborating with SIAARTI, AIM Group created an emergency scenario in which to provide hands-on training in a real-life situation.

It was this partnership which led to AIM Group International and SIAARTI being voted the winners of IAPCO’s Collaboration Award. Supported by IBTM Events, IAPCO’s Collaboration Award is one of four awards in IAPCO’s stable of Driving Excellence Awards. Collaboration is key to everything in which IAPCO believes. Behind each successful event is a solid and dependable partnership that seeks to deliver excellence. The IAPCO Collaboration Award celebrates these partnerships.
