In the EMS trends survey, we examined perceptions and experiences across the country on topics like staffing, clinical adoption and hope for the future, finding some parallels, and some change.

When the concerns and issues remain steady through good times and bad, it’s clear they are persistent and deeply rooted – and it will take thoughtful, bold and compassionate leadership to tackle them.

In this EMS1 webinar, sponsored by Verizon, a panel of rising EMS leaders who contributed their analysis to the What paramedics want in 2022 report share their interpretations and action items with the goal of translating data into information, and information into action.


“I like how the panel did not shy away from addressing the real challenges. I appreciated that they focused on issues that were brought up in the survey and stayed on point.”

“Great panel of knowledgeable practitioners with lots of real world insights to build on the survey results.”

“I enjoyed the openness of the conversation, important topics in today’s profession.”

“Good ideas from some great EMS leaders.”
