Good day and welcome to this episode of the MedicCast TV weekly commentary at MedicCast.tv. I’m your host, Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and this week I have another new episode for you.
EMS 2020 Campaign
This week I’d like to talk about an initiative that EMSWorld.com is promoting called EMS 2020. According to their introduction of this program they’ll be unfolding over the coming months, EMS 2020 with be “a multimedia guidebook to what EMS will look like in the near future and how we can ensure the safety and well-being of our stakeholders as we get there.”
Ok, I’m in!
The fact of the matter is that we need to have more industry wide planning and, honestly, soul searching, in order to better provide care for our patients during the changes to health care and our industry over the coming years. You might think that this is a long way off but 2020 will be here before you know it. It’s only seven years away and that time will fly by.
Patient and EMS Safety to the Forefront
How many EMS providers will die needlessly because we don’t continue to push for better safety procedures and practices? How many of our patients will be injured or die because we don’t stand up and advocate for better public health programs to teach bystander CPR to a wider community? So I say “Kudos” to the editorial staff at EMSWorld.com as they unfold the various segments of this program on their site.
You can check out the first two months of articles and special podcasts at EMSWorld.com/2020 or follow the links in the show notes for this episode. I urge you to own a part of EMS 2020 in your EMS practice. Work to be safer in your practice and take up the charge among your colleagues for this initiative. If you don’t champion this program, who will?
