Please join the PCRF Journal Club on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 12:00 PM (CST) for this month's discussion:

The Effect of Ambulance Staffing Models in a Metropolitan, Fire-Based EMS System
Cortez EJ, Panchal AR, Davis JE, Keseg DP

Are two medics better than one? Is Paramedic–EMT staffing just as good as an all paramedic model? In this fire-based system the authors sought to evaluate the benefits of alternative staffing models. They cited about ten studies published from 2000 to 2015 that highlighted the uncertainty in EMS as it relates to the “best” staffing model.  Could this study be strong enough to cause a change in your staffing configuration?
 
The Journal Club discussion will begin at 12:00 PM (CST). We look forward to having you join us! Please register now.
