    1/26/2016 EMS Training: "Flipping the Classroom"

    in Caregiving

    This live webcast of EMS Live in Wisconsin was recorded on Tuesday, January 26, 2016.


    Our guests included two individuals with Lifestar EMS in West Bend, WI - Assistant Training Coordinator Tyler Christifulli and Field Training Educator Sam Ireland.  They discussed how they have successfully been using field educators at their base locations, and also sending out to staff pre-training podcasts to encourage education and discussion. They call their program, "Flipping the classroom".


    Lifestar's approach to EMS education included the following:


    Identifying the epidemic of bad teaching practices that surround EMS.



    Using old power points
    Strict outlines
    Crowded slides


    What has Lifestar done to reinvent the way we approach education?



    Field Educators
    White boards
    Flipping the classroom
    Simplified power points and flip chart


    The techniques of running a good simulation.



    You don't need expensive equipment to run a good sim
    Video recording and critique playback
    Always succeed in simulations
    Takes a lot of preparation to run an efficient and dynamic simulation.

    in Training

    Time to police our own in our field. Are we advancing and progressing as a field like we should or are we stagnant. Are we going to accept the lower standards and non progressive stagnant providers and leaders we have or will we take control of our trade? Time to eat the weak! Wage War!

    EMS Compassion Or Criminal Conduct?

    in Education

    Recent two FDNY EMS Paramedics have been accused with faking an ambyulance call report after some confusion with a DNR. We all know that the Call Report is a legal document. But did these medics act on compassion based on the patients and family wishes? Or did they make such a grave error as to cost them their jobs and even jail time?


    Join us for a special live show and give your thoughts on the topic.


    Here is a link to the article in the Staten Island Advance. It should get your juices flowing for sure.
