The PCC Membership Services Committee (MSC) provides educational webinars for the benefit of members and non-members.
These webinars are held about once a month (except during summer break when many members are on vacation). Typically the webinars are available to all interested EMS providers, but are recorded and archived for later viewing by PCC Members from within the website.
These webinars are typically educational in nature, but are also used for other special needs, including for regular weekly sessions, along with members of NEMSMA, during the first several months of the H1N1 outbreak in 2009.

January 2021 Webinar:
Revolutionizing EMS: New Models of Care to Address Changing Health Care Needs in the Age of COVID | 21 January 2021
What Will We Be Discussing?
Across Canada, access to appropriate health care is an ongoing challenge, and pressures within our health care system – wait times, hospital overcrowding, patient backlog – have only been intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic. To address these challenges, integrated primary health care teams across the country are working to help patients receive the care they need in their homes and communities, where they are often happiest and healthiest.
In this virtual session, Matt Crossman, Vice President Operations, Medavie Health Services, will:
- Explore Mobile Integrated Health models at-work in communities across the country.
- Review the evidence and data supporting these models and explore preliminary outcomes.
- Review the challenges and opportunities ahead to create capacity for more community-based care during COVID.
Who will be Speaking?
Matt Crossman, Vice President, Operations, Medavie Health Services, is responsible for the delivery of paramedic services in Ontario, Western Canada, and Prince Edward Island. Prior to this, he was President and CEO of Ambulance New Brunswick. He was also previously General Manager of Island EMS and Medacom Atlantic.
