IMPACT EMS TRAINING WORKSHOPS
NEW this year, we're excited to offer two 8-hour workshops on Tuesday, April 16 hosted by Impact EMS (formerly IA MED), during which you can earn CEUs:
Pre-Flight Medical Provider - this workshop is for medical providers that aspire to pass the FP-C®, CFRN®, CTRN®, or CCP-C® exams, learn the core concepts of critical care, and more!
K9 Emergency Care - this workshop is for EMS professionals working closely with Operational K9s that want to increase their medical knowledge if one of them were to require emergency care.
This immersive experience in Lucas Oil Stadium is at the core of FDIC's critical mission 'to train' fire and EMS professionals worldwide. The experience is broken out into activations, carefully designed to deconstruct live-action scenarios to enhance firefighter and EMS professionals' skills and prepare them for the future. Stop by the EMS Evolutions Lab for scenario-based EMS training, simulations and the JEMS Clinical Competition.
JEMS CLINICAL COMPETITION
The JEMS Clinical Competition is a challenging and educational clinical competition highlighting cutting-edge simulation technology. We welcome BLS or ALS providers to put their skills to the test! Teams can be all-ALS, all-BLS, or a mix of both.
The preliminary competition challenges teams to appropriately assess and provide quality, efficient patient care during these realistic, high-pressure scenarios.
JEMS INNOVATION SUMMIT
The JEMS Innovation Summit is a platform for peer-to-peer interaction among senior EMS leaders from major metropolitan regions in the US. This is an intimate, highly focused event and every facet is designed to spark new ideas, perspectives, and connections.
