PCRF Journal Club: Do Body-Worn Cameras Impact EMS Documentation Accuracy?
Register here for the June 12 webinar hosted by PCRF members who will be discussing research recently presented by Jeffrey D. Ho, MD.
While we use both data and technology in our field more each year, there isn't a lot of research specifically evaluating both. Luckily, Ho and his coauthors recently published a novel study evaluating if the use of body-worn cameras can improve documentation accuracy on a prehospital care report.
For more information about the study, read this article by Antonio R. Fernandez, PhD, NRP, FAHA, in the June 2017 issue of EMS World Magazine.
2017 International Scientific EMS Symposium, October 19, Las Vegas, NV
PCRF is hosting a new event at EMS World Expo, the International Scientific EMS Symposium. This scientific program aims to highlight the most important EMS research of the year from across the globe, as well as provide a new venue in which EMS providers at all levels and from diverse nations can present original peer-reviewed posters and oral abstract sessions. This symposium brings a new level of academic rigor and evidence-based practice to EMS World Expo and the prehospital care profession.
From novices to experts, participants will leave the International Scientific EMS Symposium with cutting-edge knowledge and a new appreciation of how research can inform and improve the best-available evidence in EMS at the street level. Abstracts are being accepted for consideration for the Symposium through August 31, see https://www.cpc.mednet.ucla.edu/pcrf/
Pass this invitation along your class to get them interested in EMS research. Consider broadcasting the webinar over the projector in your classroom for multiple viewers.
