    2/9/2016 EMT License Renewals, Dr. Martens on Federal DEA Legilslation

    in Caregiving

    This webcast of EMS Live in Wisconsin was recorded on Tuesday, February 9, 2016.


    Our first guest at 5:00 minutes into the program was EMS Office Licensing Coordinator Helen Pullen with the State of Wisconsin.  We discussed what is required to renew your EMT, paramedic, or emergency medicala responder liccense as all state licenses expire as of June 30, 2016.  The license renewal website is https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/ems/licensing/renewal.htm.


    At 20 minutes into the program State of Wisconsin EMS and Trauma Medical Director Dr. Suzanne Martens joined us to explain House of Representatives bill 4365, Protecting Patient Access to Emergency Medication Act.  It has been recognized that EMS technically operates outside of the current DEA rules for controlled substances for pain and seizures.  The DEA has allowed this to continue, but has stated it cannot do so without a change in the actual regulations.  A draft bill to change these regulations has been written and proposed.  The House of Representatives is processing it, and will vote in the near future.  Without this bill change, all administration of controlled substances will require radio/phone contact for an order with medical control; and the ordering and stocking of these medications will be complex and costly, with potentially every ambulance being considered an "office".  Since the majority of requests for paramedic intercepts involves controlled substances, this impacts all levels of care.  >> Click for HR4365 Toolkit and how to contact your local elected federal representative.


    Co-hosts included Joe Covelli and Patrick Ryan, and the program lasted 30 minutes.

    1/26/2016 EMS Training: "Flipping the Classroom"

    in Caregiving

    This live webcast of EMS Live in Wisconsin was recorded on Tuesday, January 26, 2016.


    Our guests included two individuals with Lifestar EMS in West Bend, WI - Assistant Training Coordinator Tyler Christifulli and Field Training Educator Sam Ireland.  They discussed how they have successfully been using field educators at their base locations, and also sending out to staff pre-training podcasts to encourage education and discussion. They call their program, "Flipping the classroom".


    Lifestar's approach to EMS education included the following:


    Identifying the epidemic of bad teaching practices that surround EMS.



    Using old power points
    Strict outlines
    Crowded slides


    What has Lifestar done to reinvent the way we approach education?



    Field Educators
    White boards
    Flipping the classroom
    Simplified power points and flip chart


    The techniques of running a good simulation.



    You don't need expensive equipment to run a good sim
    Video recording and critique playback
    Always succeed in simulations
    Takes a lot of preparation to run an efficient and dynamic simulation.


    To view and listen to the February 2016 pre-training podcast, "Patterns, Pathways, and Pain", as an example, completed by Lifestar EMS, click here.
