Abstract: Maximum EMS: Better Perspectives, Wicked Problems and the Power of Checklists | 25 June 2014

What Will We Be Discussing?

Where Should You Focus Efforts to Have a High Performance System and Reduce Errors: Challenging our traditional paradigms, accepting human fallibility, and simple solutions for delivering safe reliable care.

Checklists have been used in other high consequence industries to improve performance and reliability.  Both the Congressional Fire Services Institute and the Journal of Emergency Medical Services have recognized EMS Checklists as an innovative best practice. EMS Checklists may transform the way EMS is delivered around the world.
