Student Minimum Competency Recommendations: Are you ready?

Mike Miller

October 19 at 1 PM Central Time

The primary goal of any Paramedic education program is to assure students are competent at the end of the program of study. For many years the CoAEMSP has required programs to track and report minimum competencies for various age groups, complaints, and skills as specified originally in the Student Patient Contact Matrix. The National Registry required completion and attestation of a psychomotor portfolio. CoAEMSP and the National Registry assembled a workgroup to review and revise the Student Minimum Competency Recommendations to be utilized by programs for students enrolling on or after January 1, 2023. Join us as we explore the new recommendations, documentation, and student tracking.

Objectives:

  • Review each component of the Student Minimum Competency (SMC) recommendations.
  • Discuss implementation strategies for the SMC recommendations.
  • Illustrate SMC summary tracking requirements for CAAHEP accredited and CoAEMSP Letter of Review programs.

Where Is Your Program? Alternate Locations and Satellites

November 30 at 1 PM Central Time

EMS education modalities continue to evolve from original single location classrooms to alternatives in delivery as technology grows. Changes may be driven by the availability of resources, workforce and agency needs, or by the desire of learners for a non-traditional learning environment. In response to these needs, programs may develop satellite locations or use alternate locations to deliver classroom and laboratory activities. Regardless of the modality, students attending Paramedic programs must receive the same educational program, and the CoAEMSP policies describe the requirements for Satellites and Alternate Locations. This session will review these requirements and considerations for implementation and provide examples of best practices managing delivery.

At the conclusion of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the differences between a Satellite and an Alternate Location.
  • List the requirements of a Satellite and an Alternate Location.
  • Discuss considerations in developing a Satellite or Alternate Location.

Resource Assessment: When, Why, and How…
& the Resource Assessment Matrix

Mike Miller
December 7 at 1 PM Central Time

Effectively educating paramedic students is challenging, requiring many different resources. Each year paramedic programs are required to complete a Resource Assessment Survey of both program personnel and students. Survey results include 10 different component areas and are to be reported using the Resource Assessment Matrix. Annually assessing resources provides program leadership, including the medical director and advisory committee, the ability to reaffirm areas of strength and develop action plans for areas in need of improvement. Sign up now to review the process for your program’s resource assessment.

Objectives:

  • Summarize the 10 component areas required in the resource assessment survey.
  • Describe the process to complete the Resource Assessment Survey and Resource Assessment Matrix.
  • Examine the importance of annual resource assessment.
