Why You Need to Include a Pharmacist in an EMS Quality Management Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Adding a pharmacist to an EMS quality management program improves patient safety by introducing a true pharmacology subject matter expert into the protocol development team. Come hear how one agency added an emergency medicine pharmacist to their Quality Management program and the impact it has had on ensuring patient safety while improving the transition of care between the field and emergency department. You will also hear from a pharmacist who works closely with EMS agencies.  This innovative approach to total quality management has reduced variation between the prehospital and hospital settings and has led to an expanded prehospital scope of care.
Listen as well to a pharmacist as he speaks about his work with the local fire and EMS systems.
