Scheduler

 

Adding a Shift to Your Schedule

This introduction to the Scheduler shows you how to search for available shifts, sign up for shifts that fit your schedule, and, if you have permission, how to add shifts that you create yourself to the calendar.

Understanding Compliance

Compliance is a feature of the Scheduler that tracks various requirements that you must complete to be eligible to attend shifts. If your school is using Compliance, this tutorial will help you understand how to monitor your compliance status.

Skills Tracker

 

Your Shift List

Once you start scheduling shifts, you can find them in your Skills Tracker Shift List. The Shift List is a report of all your shifts with an overview of attendance, patients, completion status, etc. The Shift List is also a portal to the Patient Care Reports you’ll complete for each shift. Watch this tutorial for an explanation of all the different elements on this page.

Documenting Your Patient Care Data

Learning how to document your patient care data in Skills Tracker is at the core of using Fisdap during your internship. This tutorial will walk you through the entire form--whether you’re tracking clinical patient assessments or field runs.

How Fisdap Tracks Airway Management

Most paramedic students will be expected to obtain at least 50 airway management attempts during their internship. Since this goal involves special criteria in the Patient Care Report, this tutorial will show you how to make sure you get credit for your airway management attempts.

Tracking Lab Skills

The way you document the skills you practice in the classroom, or lab, is different than how you enter your patient care records for hospital and ambulance shifts. Lab Practice has simple data entry forms as well as the National Registry’s full skill sheets.

Testing

 

Reviewing Results & Understanding Cut Scores

After you take a Fisdap exam, and if your school permits it, you can immediately review your score. Your results, also known as the Learning Prescription, include a numerical score as well as a detailed outline of all the topics you need to study, based on which questions you answered incorrectly.

Reports

 

Observed Team Lead Report

This report is a great tool for finding runs or clinical assessments where you did NOT indicate that you were the team lead or performed the patient interview or exam. Depending on your school’s requirements, all three of those criteria must be marked as “performed” in order to get credit for that patient’s age, complaint and impression toward your overall goals.
