The evolution of community paramedic education
SDFD’s Anne Jensen and REMSA’s Adam Heinz share tips on MIH/CP training, time scales and starting up
EMS brings innovation, nimbleness and much-needed value to the healthcare community with mobile integrated health/community paramedicine programs of various shapes and sizes. So how can EMS organizations best prepare community paramedics for this expanded role?
The EMS Educator podcast Hosts Rob Lawrence and Hilary Gates, MAEd, NRP, interview two originators of successful MIH/CP programs: Anne Jensen of San Diego Fire-Rescue and Adam Heinz of REMSA, in Reno, Nevada.
Our discussion explores training, partnerships, resource management, funding, the Triple Aim, time scales, social determinants of health, and how to start up; because community paramedics "don't do easy."
