Standing on the Shoulders of Giants: The Role of Mentoring in EMS

No one in EMS succeeds alone. However, far too frequently new practitioners are left to “take their lumps” and languish without proper guidance. This common dilemma leads to not only poor patient care, but serves to weight down EMS as a profession in face of progress. This motivational discussion will describe the importance of mentors in EMS and discuss the role of EMS education in fostering these relationships.

EMS Education Dinosaurs

How willing are you to change what you've been doing for decades in the classroom? Are your analogies older than your students? Are we teaching to only listen to ourselves pontificate or truly invested in promoting lifelong learning? Are we effectively developing critical thinkers who can translate theory into practice? What strategies, tools, and technology can breathe life back into your classroom and engage your EMS students?

McDonald and Prescott
