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.
Fran Mott has been the Chapter Leader in Michigan for the VHL Family Alliance since 1994. What that means is that she is in charge of taking care of people with von Hippel-Lindau throughout Michigan.
Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) is a genetic cancer syndrome, caused by one tiny misspelling in one gene, the VHL gene. People who carry this alteration are at increased risk of having one or more tumors in a variety of places in the body. There is currently no magical cure, it's all about watching out for issues, finding them early, and getting the right treatment at the right time.
Fran has worked with physicians at University of Michigan Medical Center and other hospitals throughout the state to become more aware of VHL, diagnose it earlier and more accurately, and help people manage their health. The University of Michigan has created a Clinical Care Center for VHL, part of the CCC program of the VHL Alliance.
Fran is retiring this year after nearly 20 years of volunteer service to her neighbors throughout the state. Joyce speaks with Fran about her experience as a patient herself, a mother, and a volunteer in service to others with this rare disease.
The VHL Alliance will hold its Annual Meeting September 21, 2013, in Ann Arbor, with a dinner September 20 honoring Fran and Dr. James Montie of the U of M.

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
Do you have a passion for EMS? Seek out training, surround yourself with like minded professionals. Do you read the blogs, the articles the websites? More importantly do you show the passion in your work, with your patients and coworkers?
For some EMS becomes just a job, a place for a paycheck, a pit stop on the way to other careers. This can be frustrating for those who have a passion to see. Then once in awhile you see or hear a story and it makes you realize that most of us in EMS are truly passionate.
Whether paid or volunteer it takes a certain someone to be an EMS professional. Join us as we discuss just who that someone is. It may just be you.

This week we talk about the part time EMS provider. The volunteer, the person who uses EMS as a part time income or because they enjoy the rush, the change from a desk job. Does this type of workforce help or hurt us as a profession? How does this demographic in EMS effect the supply and demand for employers?
How does this all translate to those of us who depend on EMS for our livelihood? Join us for this discussion and bring your experiences and opinions.

Last week we talked about EMS being a hobby. This week we steer the conversation a little bit and discuss the sharing of responsibilities.
EMTs doing ALS, firefighters doing EMS and now even law enforcement giving drugs that traditionally only advanced level EMS providers could give.
Do these types of skill set cross overs help EMS as a profession or do they further the perception that ANYONE can do our job at minimal cost.

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.
The topic of EMS providers being able to demand higher pay is often seen in various blogs, forums and facebook groups.
We have even discussed it here on the show several times and points of view about education, training, nursng etc have all come up.
But what is that sweet spot? What is the "number' that would be fair based on our training and education? Do you have one in your head that you think is fair?
Fueled by the recent JEMS report, this is lining up to be a great episode.
Join us for this episode as we discuss pay in EMS, getting more of it and what should be the starting or end point in EMS salary ranges.
