Research 101: A Free Course that Promotes Involvement in EMS ResearchBy Rachael Rosen

May 19, 2014

Just in time for EMS Week, we’re excited to announce the release of Research 101, which we developed in partnership with the UCLA Prehospital Care Research Forum. Research 101 is a new online video series designed to encourage EMS providers, educators and students to get involved in EMS research.

Baxter Larmon and David Page

Two of the leading voices in EMS research, Dr. Baxter Larmon and David Page lecture on the benefits of research and deliver a 12 step plan to getting started on a research project. Dr. Larmon is the Director of the Prehospital Care Research Forum at UCLA and David Page is a paramedic instructor at Inver Hills Community College and writes the research column for JEMS magazine.

Dr. Larmon and Mr. Page offer a live version of this lecture series at the annual Fisdap Research Summit and at national conferences. By recording their presentation and making it freely available, we hope to bring this information to more people.

At its heart, this course is an extension of Fisdap and the PCRF’s vision to promote research about EMS patient care and education that will lead to important evidence that can drive progress and validate best practices.  

Research 101 can be viewed online and completed in four hours. The course features a series of short videos followed by quizzes that can be used for educational purposes. Everyone who completes the course will earn a certificate.

Research 101 is available now and free to everyone. All you need to do is log in with your Fisdap username and password.
