Director's Update - August 2016

Letter from the Director, David Page:

Congratulations to Corey Bryan for winning Best Research, and to Sahaj Khalsa for receiving best Oral Presentation at the 2016 NAEMSE Symposium. Corey Bryan’s work “Exploring the Career Success of Paramedic Program Directors” informs all of us about the stresses and challenges ahead for administration of paramedic programs.

Sahaj was magnetic and uncompromising during his presentation. His subtle satire melded with quick wit and true science gave the audience a unique insight into “Tying it Together: Examining the Relationship Between Student Affective Domain Traits and Restraint Use”. Listen to Sahaj’s summarize his presentation on the PCRF Facebook page:

Voting for Best Research was tight; Greg Vis, with his project on “Mobile Simulation for Rural EMS Training” almost edged out Dr. Bryan. This longitudinal study was very well planned, and funded by the office of Rural Health Initiatives. It’s nice to see EMS research in rural areas focusing on improvement of care through simulation. Greg discussed his poster here:
