Lessons Learned While Building a Super-Sized Simulation Center

Kimberly Whitten & Adrienne Wilk

Thursday, October 29

12:00 pm ET

A functional simulation space is vital to providing students with an optimal learning environment. Many EMS programs are securing funding to develop and/or increase the amount of simulation space used by their programs. Increased need for simulation space is necessitated by a desire to implement educational best-practices and a need to replicate clinical experiences students are not getting or are only observing while in the field. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the experiences of community college faculty while planning, constructing, and transitioning into a 70,000 square foot interdisciplinary simulation center. The ioutcome of the presentation is for increased knowledge related to best practices in planning for and moving into a new simulation space.


Tactical Medics, Back to Basics

Michael F. Biamonte

Tuesday, November 10

2:00 pm ET

The FBI provides training and education for its SWAT medical operators. Over time we realized that the level of EMT for initial SWAT medics wasn’t necessary. In 2016 we changed our initial/introductory SWAT medical training level from EMT to EMR. In a short period of time we realized that medical operators were providing better care, and more focused. The switch also allowed for easier recertification, higher retention of medics, and a more cost-efficient process. 


Do they have the Capacity?

Ben Hearn

Tuesday, November 19

12:00 pm ET


“Altered Mental Status” tends to be a frequent complaint to EMS providers. But what is normal, what is altered and how do EMS providers differentiate between the two during the patient assessment. This discussion is designed to address just that. By highlighting structures within the cerebrum and other nervous system structures and their relationship to one another and responses, we will begin to relate normal versus abnormal and gain an understanding how to appropriately evaluate a patient’s mental status far beyond the initial AVPU and GCS indices taught initially. This course is designed to teach the participant proven accepted methods of evaluating mental competency and being able to incorporate this new method into a part of everyday treatment. Then to further the providers understanding, a review and differentiating of neurological diseases will be reviewed to enhance the providers skill set in establishing a field deferential diagnosis.


Why We Need the Humanities; Improving Healthcare Thru Movies, Music, Art and Literature

Rick Slaven

Thursday, December 3

3:00 pm ET


Medical Humanities is an interdisciplinary field of medicine which includes the humanities, social science and the arts and their application to medical education and practice. The humanities help us understand and relate to people - a crucial factor in building and maintaining relationships and, thus, in providing effective health care. Improving medical practitioners' abilities to understand and relate to patients in one of the primary issues the emerging interdisciplinary field of medical humanities is trying to address. The revitalized focus on the patients' perspective in healthcare provides an added impetus for the contemplation of the patient experience. The goal is to show how humanities and the arts can help them develop both critical thinking and empathy to better understand their patients' illness experiences, the doctor/medical team - patient/family relationships, provider self-care, and various other aspects of healthcare.
Sure, We Have our Protocols Online

Shawn Treloar

Thursday, December 8

3:00 pm ET


Most systems that say they have online protocol just have scanned copies of their printed book. The Seminole County EMS system uses free open source software to maintain online protocols at The software, Mediawiki, is the same software used to run Wikipedia. This software is easy to use and allows for dated tracking of changes. This presentation will teach participants how to create and maintain their own protocol website. When they leave at the end of the day they will have the beginnings of their own site and the knowledge on how to build it out completely.



Difficult Subject Matter - Do We Take on the Tough Jobs?
Steven Mountfort

Wednesday, January 13

12:00 pm ET


For years, EMS education has been teaching the standard topics. Items such as reading 12-lead ECGs, the various stroke scales, how to perform emergency airways and pharmacology have been the cornerstones of courses. In today's world other topics are coming to the forefront. Mental health including substance use disorder, human trafficking, mass shootings and other difficult topics can easily get pushed to the side. In this presentation, we will discuss things suck as why these topics have become so important to the EMS industry. How important is the affective domain in these subjects? How much time should we spend discussing difficult subject matters. Finally, what is the harm we are currently doing by not teaching them effectively? This is an interactive presentation where attendees are encouraged to offer their current practices.




Crisis Intervention & Mitigation Awareness Training
Christian Yacula
Thursday, January 21

1:00 pm ET


Bringing awareness of 10 mental health patients in crisis, as an example, and the 4 different types of violent patients they can become when in crisis, or when not managed by EMS or PD properly. Safety, mitigation, verbal defusing techniques, knowing when to "bow out," and how empathy, not sympathy, can reduce exposure to patients attaching prehospital providers. Patient advocacy for providing the patient with the right resource hospital and no longer discarding this patient population.




Dissertation Disclosure and Thesis Therapy
Megan Cory
Wednesday, January 27

1:00 pm ET


Thinking of enrolling in a Master's or Doctorate program? Or, maybe you're in the process or completed and want to share your ideas and experiences. Perhaps you're in the ABD (All But Dissertation) limbo. We've been there and want to help! This session will provide attendees with a survival toolkit for successful completion of a graduate program. Presenters will share strategies for success in a graduate program and how to maintain personal health and well-being in the process. This session is also an opportunity to share your graduate research ideas, proposals and completed work with others. Brainstorm a research question, refine a research methodology, or just come to participate in a friendly forum to discuss research and learn from experiences of others.
