PINNACLE POWER SEMINARS
The creation of a culture of science and information continues to gain momentum in EMS, thanks to the work of pioneering researchers and a growing body of evidence.
In this educational and interactive seminar, some of the leading minds in prehospital care will examine the latest clinical research and trends, providing participants with an insightful look at which new developments will change EMS practice—and which ones won’t be around next year.
This session will shed light on current clinical innovations (and challenges), new mechanisms to make quality improvement efforts more effective and efficient, how EMS can participate in large-scale population health research projects, and a look at some of the most cutting-edge clinical innovations available today and in the future
(Note: Participants registered for this workshop will receive articles to read prior to attending the session to facilitate discussion.)
You will learn:
- Current research initiatives and their implications for your EMS system
- Evidence-based ways to address the opioid crisis, sepsis and other issues facing EMS providers today
- How to prepare for, and take advantage of, anticipated shifts in standards of care and priorities
- New innovations and technologies that will have a positive impact in your system
Leading EMS researchers Scott Bourn, PhD, former Senior Vice President Quality Measurement and Improvement at Evolution Health; David Page, MS, Director of the Prehospital Care Research Forum at UCLA; Ed Racht, MD, Chief Medical Officer, AMR, and Angus Jameson, MD, EMS Medical Director, Pinellas County, Florida, will facilitate this session.
