Early in EMS education we are presented with the idea that "time" is a factor in much of what we do. Golden Hours, Platinum Ten Minutes, Time is Muscle etc.
While some of these can help us with our treatment and transport decisions, have you ever wondered or questioned if they are getting in the way of patient care?
As EMS providers we bring much of the Emergency Department to the patient. Even more so we are expected to provide certain levels of care to our patients prior to delivery to these ED's.
I am sure that you have been questioned or made to feel like less of a provider when you don't provide certain aspects of care. Even when it was due to trying to follow dictated "time" constraints that are expected and may have been in the patients better interest to transport rather than perform a skill prior to arrival at the ED.
So what do you think? Are these time markers valuable to us as providers or helpful?
Do we end up focusing too much on them and not on what is best for the patient?

Joyce speaks with Anne Wilson, CEO of Kidney Health Australia (kidney.org.au), an organization dedicated to helping all Australians maintain good kidney health throughout their lifetimes.
While traditionally focused on kidney diseases that reduce kidney function and may lead to dialysis and transplant, several years ago the organization undertook also to support people with kidney cancer. It now works not only for awareness of issues that may degrade kidney function, it works too to raise awareness of the early signs of kidney cancer and connect people diagnosed with any of these issues find the help they need.
In addition to her work with Kidney Health Australia, Anne also serves with Joyce on the Leadership Team of the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC.org), an international network of patient support and advocacy organizations established with the mission of improving the quality of life of patients and their families living with kidney cancer. IKCC provides information, support and assistance to national and regional non-profit kidney cancer organizations. All organizations are welcome to participate.
Cassia started as a dialysis assistant in 2007 and in 2008
was promoted to a dialysis technician. Cassia's number one priority is
making sure that each patient that she has in her care is really handled
professionally in every way and the result is her patients appreciate her
so much. She has created a book called Expert Tips on Becoming A Dialysis
Technician. It is designed to give all those interested in becoming a
dialysis technician tips on how to be a real professional in a dialysis
environment, this book is also good for technicians that desire to brush up
on their skills. Her book explores ways to handle a patient in the best way
possible, do's and don'ts, how to listen to the patient and so much more.
Cassia knows this book will give great insight to dialysis patients and
will inspire new or experienced dialysis technicians to be the best
Join us for the live EMS Paramedic radio show. Jim, Josh and Dave will bring their own topics and open the back of the ambulance doors so you can add your own to the jump bag.
The bag is as full as ever but we can jam some more in as always. This week:
OMG EMT <- Jim watched a few episodes - pleazzzzzzz.

Summertime, drownings and July 4th shenanigans.
Plus member questions and more.
In order to maintain privacy and confidentiality, there are rules of access to Electronic Health Records (EHR) that can sometimes present barriers to delivering the best care.
Tracy Zervakis and her daughter recently had quite an adventure trying to get the right medicine at the right time, and ran into several roadblocks imposed by the access rules around EHR at her hospital.
While it sounds like a good idea to restrict access to those with a "need to know," in practice it sometimes get in the way. Perhaps we need to re-think those rules, not only for the events in a peaceful day at the office, but also in an emergency.
Joyce and Mike speak with Tracy about her adventure and about ideas for improving the flow of medical information to patients, to emergency personnel, and to all those who really do "need to know" in order to deliver the right care at the right time.
Mike Lawing attended the Ninth European Kidney Cancer Symposium in Dublin last April, and has carefully crafted an excellent report to share that meeting with all the patients and family members who wished they could be there.

See http://www.smartpatients.com Participants were asked to submit questions in advance to Robin or to Powerful Patient.

Join us as we talk with Paul Szablowski, the Senior Vice President of Communications and Image at Texas Health Resources, about “Creating a Fascinating Patient Experience.” Paul contends that treating patients should not be limited to prescribing medication and ordering tests. Instead, hospitals should re-examine the entire patient environment starting from the minute patients walk through the door, including lighting in the building and the type of questions that are asked. All these items are important as healthcare organizations find new and exciting ways to engage patients and shift towards value-based, holistic care.
GREAT GRADES : How was your child's 'A' computed'?
A grade is an evaluation indicator; it has nothing to do with how your child was assessed or the assessment. In this show, we want parents to get a better understanding of how grades can be assessed.
Do you know how your child’s grades were assessed?
Do you know what level of assessment was used – high ordered thinking or low order cognitive development?
Classroom DNA will also implement a new format, 30 minute shows followed by Phyllis Austin’s Educational Perspective.
