Pediatric Emergency Medical Services Workshop

A FREE EDUCATIONAL EVENT held on day 2 of The Ohio EMS Conference 2018!

WHAT: Regional workshops to present the new concept of the Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinator, or PECC, designed to be a position included in every EMS agency in the country. The PECC would be the go-to person for all things pediatric at a particular EMS agency, including such tasks as protocol development, quality improvement, continuing education and skill verification, injury prevention, and liaison with the PECC at receiving hospital emergency departments. In addition, the workshops will include a breakout session on pediatric skill assessment.
