MedicCast Episode 442

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the MedicCast. I’m your host, Jamie Davis the Podmedic and I’d like to welcome you to this week’s show. In this week’s EMS news items we’ll look at EMS to weigh in on the debate about wearable body cameras. How soon will body cameras come to your EMS service? We’ll find out later in the show after the news.

Then in this week’s special interview segment I bring you an interview I did with EMS 10 Awardee Rachel Phillips from the London Ambulance Service. She is an educator and paramedic there who is responsible for getting continuing and ongoing education out to her paramedics. She came up with some novel ways to do that in her system and was recognized for it at EMS Today this year.

Tip of the Week: Improving and Innovating EMS Continuing Education

EMS10_Phillips_ScreenshotAt the EMS Today conference in Baltimore this past month, the best of the best in emergency medical services were recognized at the annual EMS 10 Awards ceremony. This year emergency medical services educator and paramedic Rachel Phillips from the London Ambulance Service won an award recognizing her for her empowering and motivating approach to clinical training, paramedic continuing education and provider updates that ensure high standards of excellence in patient care throughout the London Ambulance Service system. I talked with Rachel about her program in London and got some ideas you might be able to implement in your EMS system.

A special thanks again to EMS Today and especially to Physio-Control for sponsoring our podcast studio at the EMS Today conference this year.
