In the absence of medical doctors, seafarers who are unwell or have had an accident, have access to limited medical supplies. However recent technical advancements have enabled the development of systems to support ship personnel requesting medical assistance. With the support of the ITF Seafarers’ Trust, Centro Internationale Radio Medico (C.I.R.M.) has developed the Maritime Doctor (MD) system to help seafarers obtain a better quality of telemedicine services from remote doctors.
