Tip This Week — Poison Prevention Week Tips

With Angel Bivens, PharmD, from the Maryland Poison Center

Poison Prevention Week is coming up March 15 thru the 21, 2010. This provides the local paramedics and EMTs and their EMS services a perfect opportunity to reach out and touch their communities in partnership with their local poison centers.

For this episode, I am joined by Toxicology Specialist and community educator, Angel Bivens, PharmD, from the Maryland Poison Center (MDPoison.com) to chat about using resources from the regional poison centers to set up a local education program, meeting, or training to teach the public about poison prevention for patients at all ages.

Angel covers some of the common programs an EMS agency could put together in their area as well as talking about how teaching the public about using their local poison center number is a great way to reduce some of the ambulance call volume.

For more on setting up a Poison Prevention Program in your community, see links below
