SORT BY Relevancy
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?

Every day in EMS we make decisions. They can be for patient care, transport, refusals and documentation. What do you feel influences these decisions each day? The simple answer may be "whatever is best for the patient". But sometimes the reality of the answer may be more like "what is best for me and what my agency wants".
Join us for this episode as we jump on this topic and also how we as indvidual providers can try and influence decisions that our agency makes. Decisions that can be focused on patient care alone.

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.

EMS is tough. Lots of training, stress, patients, families and even supervisors all make a days work in the EMT/Paramedic life. But what about when your very own partner is a total ass. Maybe to you, to patients or even other health care professionals?
How do you handle this type of personality trait? If you have been in EMS for a bit you are sure to have been exposed to some extent a partner like this or may even still are.
Join us for this episode as we talk about ways to deal with these "partners" on a personal and professional level.
We will also be answring some listener questions and maybe even a few hot news topics thrown in for good measure.

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 patient assessment tips and tell us your indoctrination into "patient assessment".

EMS Week 2014 has begun. Oh the fun, prizes, days off and benefits of being an EMS provider are finally bestowed upon us all.
Or - it is business as usual and the one week that is named EMS Week is shared with other events, requires us to be on a week long public awareness campaign and often is overlooked by even our management.
Hey we are not looking for too much, but maybe just like during Nurses Week you see posters and ads that say "Thank a nurse" we could have something similar. Instead of lets show the public the ambulance, teach first aid or CPR for free and make sure we get to the ED to maybe get a free meal before the rest of the "EMS" peeps get it all. (rest of EMS meaning ED tech, nurses, docs and housekeeping).
Join us for your EMS week joy installment and start the week off right. Call in or chat live to share all you are getting for EMS Week and what you will be doing to celebate this special week.
Join us for another fast paced episode of EMS discussion. This week we bring up the topic of trust in EMS. How do we develop trust with our patients, ED staff and our EMS partners? Each has its own approach and it's own value in how we do our jobs and how successful we are as EMS Professionals.
