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.

Our next webinar is scheduled for March 18, 2020 3:30pm EST, ‘Advancing Despite Adversity’ with Jurie Rossouw and Mike Taigman.
Disclaimer – Although we make every effort to record webinars, we cannot guarantee all webinars will be recorded.
Advancing Despite Adversity | March 18, 2020
What Will We Be Discussing?
There’s no question that increasing resilience for ourselves and our colleagues has amazing benefits. It increases the ability to achieve big goals, improves the quality of relationships while protecting against depression, anxiety, and PTSD. The question is, what actually makes up resilience and how can it be developed effectively? During this session we will interview Jurie Rossouw an Australian neuroscientist who is revolutionizing how we think about resilience.
Who will be Speaking?
Jurie Rossouw is the CEO of Driven, a leading AI-powered platform that assess and improves personal resilience. Having published multiple research papers in the area of the neuroscience of resilience, Jurie’s focus is on building resilience at an individual, organisational, and global level. He has consulted with large banks, airlines, education institutions, mining, and more. Projects ranged from building resilience at cultural levels, through to enhancing business resilience at a process and resource level. Most recently Jurie published Executive Resilience, a book which delves into the neuroscience of organisational cultural resilience, and how resilience will become more important as a skill to thrive in a disruptive environment. Jurie co-authored two research papers on The Predictive 6-Factor Resilience Scale, highlighting a new path to holistic resilience measurement. This work established six domains of resilience, providing a holistic and neuroscience-based view of resilience.
Mike Taigman has focused the majority of his career on helping make things better. As a street paramedic in Denver, he honed his clinical skills caring for patients and helping new paramedics learn to provide solid clinical care with kindness and compassion. As a popular conference educator, author of more than 600 articles in professional journals, and a multi decade Associate Professor in the graduate program in Emergency Health Services Management at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, he’s focused on helping professionals save more lives, reduce suffering, and be more effective leaders. As a consultant, Mike has worked with EMS, Fire, and Public Health in 48 of the 50 states, most of the Canadian Provinces, Israel, Palestine, Australia, and throughout Europe. His expertise includes EMS Street Survival, Patient Centered Leadership, and Effective Quality/Performance Improvement.
