When thinking about rural EMS systems compared to an urban setting. Does the rural setting have certain advantages? What about disadvantages? Issues like available resources, transport times, volunteers, skills frequency and others can play a role in overall patient care. So what are your thoughts? Do these two systems differ? Are they similar enough not to matter in the long run? Join us for this episode and give your experiences in the chat room or call in toll free.
Patient assessment in EMS is pointed to as the key ingredient with our patient contacts. Yet how much time is really spent on this in class? Things like the importance of reassessment, differential diagnosis and treatments. We seem to have this pride of ABCDE, DCAP, BTLS and knowing it, sticking to primary and secondary surveys. But what about really knowing what we are looking for and identifying true emergencies instead of fitting patients into protocols? Join us for this episode, share your
One Mission One Team. Can this be possible? If you have listened to the show you know we really seem far from one of anything. But perhaps we are closer or can get closer than we think possible.
Join us with your EMS week plans and how you define this years slogan.

A recent YouTube video showcases a recorded conversation between an employee and management. Right or wrong, this is yet another perception issue in EMS on what is expected, entitlement and reality. Come join us for this discussion so you can weigh in on how you may have handled this situation, what might have been a better method or if you would have acted at all on this event.
With recent events in Boston and Texas, the idea of situational awareness for EMS providers is one where we should evaluate and re-evaluate our roles. But while you often hear about situational awareness and may even be keenly aware of it during these calls, the actual situation itself can often have us abandoning training, in favor of saving lives.
Come join us as we discuss these events, emergency response and other hot topics in EMS.

This week Dr. Elvira will speak with Dr. Manon Bolliger, the founder of Bowen college, director of Cornerstone Health Centre and author of What Patients Don’t Say if Doctors Don’t Ask – The Mindful Patient-Doctor Relationship. They will talk about many things including the rapid changes occurring in health care today, the importance of providing quality health care, what is meant my quality health care, and how it can be accomplished.
Dr. Bolliger has treated thousands of patients in Canada over the past two decades; from rural farmers in Nova Scotia to corporate stressed out CEOs in Toronto, to Tri-Athletes in British Columbia. This diversified experience, not only in the range of required skills in health care and in pain relief, but also the differing mindsets that people have towards their bodies, has helped her identify the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and being able to truly listen and respond from the place where people are coming from.
Her Cornerstone Health Centre accommodates a full team of experts. The Centre has programs for patients that include pain relief, aging with grace (anti-aging) and holistic and preventative family health care. Her passion for healing from the inside out has led her to specialize in homeopathy and the Bowen Technique. Throughout her personal and academic journey, she was led by her desire to understand what makes people change, grow, heal and celebrate life.
She has a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine, is a Certified Advance Bowen practitioner, and Studied under a wide variety of homeopaths at the New England School of Homeopathy, the Dynamis School of Homeopathy with Jeremy Sherr, the Bombay School and with Massimo Mangiolavori.
Join me as I interview Dr. David Lewis as he shares his life experience in the health care system as a Family Doctor, Patient and Caregiver.
David Lewis FRCSEd, MRCGP David Lewis is a family doctor in United Kingdom. David completed medical training at Monash University and Alfred Hospital in Melbourne. Postgraduate training in United Kingdom in general surgery then family medicine followed. In 1990, David was diagnosed with advanced Hodgkins Lymphoma. This was the same year his father died from lung cancer, and he married Danielle. Danielle was pregnant with their first child at the time of diagnosis. Anxious to have further children, David delayed essential treatment for the lymphoma to store sperm. This action has been vindicated because twins were born in 1994 with help of IVF; the children are among first 5000 IVF babies in UK. In 2007, David suffered a heart attack requiring emergency intervention, followed by quadruple bypass surgery. The heart surgery was successful, but a complication developed requiring further surgery in January 2008. Sadly, this operation was complicated by respiratory arrest and subsequent 5 weeks on a ventilator. Today, David works full time in National Health Service General Practice with three Partners. The practice also serves as a site for the University College London Medical School “Medicine in Community” program. The practice is in a suburban area and looks after over 6,600 people from cradle to grave. In the last couple of years David has developed an interest in promoting the use of information technology for professional development and peer support
