Friday, Oct 7 2016 11:30AM - 12:00PM
Where are you going in your EMS career? Do you sometimes feel like you have ideas to make things in emergency medicine better, but never say or do anything because you'll be "shot down" or just don't know where to start? If these kind of thoughts regularly pop into your mind then perhaps is time to get the "F" (fear) out! During this session, we will review many of the amazing contributions and inventions that EMTs, paramedics and other emergency medical professionals have made to improve our lives...once they got the "F" out. Follow these start-up companies from conception to creation, and learn how they turned turmoil into trademarks and tragedies into triumphs to truly lead the EMS profession into the future.
Lisa DeBoer, started out in the world of EMS in 1991 working for a private ambulance service, with dreams of becoming part of a medevac flight team one day. However, in April of 1993, after living through a horrific ambulance crash, Lisa's ideas about what she thought her future would look like were altered forever! What she used to call "the worst night of my life," ultimately put her on the path to becoming an EMS Director of Public Relations, entrepreneur, and finally the Co-Founder and President of Pedi-Ed-Trics Emergency Medical Solutions, LLC. Pedi-Ed-Trics is now one of the largest dedicated pediatric emergency education companies in the United States, and is actively taking a global direction, providing pediatric programs in Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina and providing pediatric resource books and materials for nurses, medics, and respiratory therapists around the world. Helping to save the lives of children through education remains at the heart of all Lisa and her husband, Scott DeBoer, do on a daily basis.
