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.
In hospital time, EMS utilization and it's effects on patient care
Summertime, drownings and July 4th shenanigans.
Plus member questions and more.
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.
Well, here we are at the midway point of 2014. Have you been assessing your accomplishments for the year so far? Or are you frustrated that you haven't made as much progress with your plans, your ideas or the changes you wanted to make?
Today is a good day to stop and assess where you stand. Did you overcome any obstacles or did they stop you completely in your tracks? Did you make a plan and accomplish any forward steps, or are you still stuck at the starting point?
It's important to make progress, but it all goes back to the two most important things in this process: (1) You must figure out what it is that you really want. No one can do that for you; and (2) You have to keep moving forward; making progress toward your vision.
Join Teresa Beeman this morning for 30 minutes of discussion on a "Mid-Year Assessment: Empowered or Stuck?"
This show is brought to you by the Center for Empowered Women. It can be heard every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 am Eastern time.
David Kuhn, PhD and renonowned autism expert Catherine Lord, PhD will discuss
What are the critical developmental milestones that children should meet before the age of 18 months?
Failure to meet which of these milestones would be a "red flag" for seeking professional help?
What does autism look like in a toddler?
If a parent suspects that their child is experiencing a developmental delay or autistic-like symptoms, who should he/she contact first?
Who is qualified to access autism, and what should a parent expect from the process?
If my child is diagnosed with autism, what types of services will they need?

This blog cast is about creating and Implementing an Absorb-Type Activity Needs Assessment. It is for and about EDU652: Instructional Design and Delivery. The instructor is Dr. Deborah Moerland. A needs assessment is a systematic approach to studying the state of knowledge, ability, interest, or attitude of a defined audience or group involving a particular subject (McCawley, 2009). This needs assessment is being conducted so that the interested person can verify her own level of knowledge and skill, interests, opinions, and learning habits and preferences (McCawley, 2009). Collecting and analyzing needs assessment data will allow her to identify what she already knows and answer questions about what she does not known (McCawley, 2009). Creating and Implementing an Absorb-Type Activity Needs Assessment will discuss what the writer knows, what she wants to know, what she is trying measure, determine, and define; how she will collect and record information, how she will report the collected information, and why this needs assessment was conducted.

Dave deBronkart has a well-earned reputation as an e-Patient. An internationally recognized speaker, author, and health policy advisor, he has words of strength for patients for sure.
In addition, he works with physicians, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies to help them Let Patients Help!
When most manufacturers decide to create a new product, they do market research and conduct focus groups to determine in advance what the consumers want.
In medicine, it's mostly about what the doctors want.
But the doctors are not the end-user consumers in medicine, they are talented and experienced personnel, but the end-user consumers are the patients.
Come hear what Dave believes are the many ways that Patients can help improve healthcare.

Dr. Julia Hallisy is a practicing dentist in San Francisco, California. In 1989, Dr. Hallisy’s late daughter, Katherine, was diagnosed at five months of age with bilateral retinoblastoma. Dealing with Kate’s life-threatening diagnosis marked the beginning of a 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.
The many lessons she learned during Kate’s life became the foundation for her book, The Empowered Patient: Hundreds of life-saving facts, action steps and strategies you need to know. Dr. Hallisy works at The Empowered Patient Coalition non-profit organization and has worked with the California Nurses Association, the IOM Initiative on the Future of Nursing and is a member of the leadership council for the California Regional Coalition working to implement the IOM recommendations.
