Understanding Simulation Training in Paramedic Education – Follow-up Data from a NAEMSE Research Project

10/20/2014

We have all heard in some iteration the saying “you can't know where you are going until you know where you have been”. Simulation training has long been used in EMS education, but in today’s changing landscape of pre-hospital care we find ourselves asking, is it being utilized to its fullest potential?   In order to answer this question and make any determination on the future direction of this very powerful methodology we must first understand the current state of the industry.

During this webinar we will examine current literature in healthcare simulation and touch on some of the follow-up findings from the study conducted by the NAEMSE Research Committee. Discussion points will include how and where simulations are being conducted, feedback and assessment strategies, and scenario obtainment.

Join Kim McKenna, project lead for the NAEMSE Simulation Use in Paramedic Education Research (SUPER) and Emergency Medical Responder Project Level leader on the National EMS Education Standards Task force as we explore how simulation use may impact today’s paramedic programs.

A New Look at CPR: BLS Training Tailored to You

09/09/2014

Join us on September 9th for an introduction to the newest BLS course, geared specifically toward prehospital providers. We will introduce the latest course that combines flexibility and allows for customization to meet your needs. You will learn how feedback from the EMS community shaped this course, the concept of high-performance teams and how to provide the best resuscitation possible.

A New Format 
The BLS for Prehospital Providers program combines online instruction and classroom training into a single course that leverages current educational trends. Real-world team CPR scenarios show the role individuals play in emergency response situations.

We will introduce the BLS PHP Course and its components. A combination of online and classroom training improves the learning experience and provides greater flexibility for students and instructors, while still delivering hands-on instruction that enhances performance and improves outcomes. This course is scenario based, and allows for discussion of local protocols and how they affect your approach to resuscitation and implementing high-quality team CPR.
