WEBINAR EVENT: Becoming more than just a number: Steps to new EMS provider professional growth.
Description: Newly certified EMTs can often face a variety of challenges when “breaking into” a new paid or volunteer position. The transition from student to provider is at best challenging, and at times overwhelming. Facing the reality of some aspects of EMS can be underwhelming. Findings one’s place within an organization, and within a system of patient care, can at times feel daunting. Figuring out how to build upon the excitement and growth that occurred within the initial certification class can be confusing and frustrating. These things make it easy to simply fall into a rut. Failing to address these things often leads to an early departure from the EMS community. The good news is that none of these things have to be permanent. This 1 1/2 hour webinar is designed to provide guidance and encouragement to the newly minted EMT (three years or less certification) as they navigate these very waters. More seasoned providers that often mentor new EMTs may also find benefit in the tips presented in this course. Through discussion of four key steps, webinar participants will learn how to be better prepared for making that transition to becoming more than just a number on a certification card. After discussing these steps, we will conclude with sharing 8 patient assessment tips from the field to provoke thought, and hopefully springboard the newer provider into lifelong learning.
