Supplement, EMS 10: Innovators of EMS 2011
  • Facilitating a Digital Dialogue

    In the beginning, there were MS-DOS, listservs, AOL, CompuServe and Netscape Navigator. Long ago, these and other “high-tech” inventions ushered in the digital age. My, how times have changed. Today we have Facebook, Twitter, Skype, blogs, podcasts, wikis, and a host of other online technologies that have literally transformed the way people communicate around the world. And Tom Bouthillet, EMT-P, has been there from the beginning.

  • Gathering Empirical Evidence

    As a former street paramedic, Mary Meyers, MHA, EMT-P, understands the difficulties that EMS providers face each day, particularly working in an unpredictable environment.

  • Building an Alliance

    Let’s be clear about the focus that Paul Paris, MD, FACEP, LLD (Hon.) has on EMS. Paris, professor of emergency medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and medical director for the Center for Emergency for Western Pennsylvania, is all about the health and safety of EMS providers. To prove it, he has spent much of his professional life advocating for the kinds of research that will make their lives safer and easier.

  • Creating an EMS Safety Net

Until now.

  • Spreading Her Mission

    After a successful 14-year career as a pediatric emergency department (ED) nurse, Stephanie Haley-Andrews, RN, EMT-P, began searching for a new calling. As she thought about it, she knew she would stay in emergency medicine. She knew she had a profound respect for the EMS colleagues she encountered every day. And she knew she cared deeply about children’s medical and trauma care. The job she eventually fashioned for herself pulled all these elements together into something that has had a far-reaching effect on the state of Colorado and the neighboring region.
