EMS Conferences, Seminars, and Lectures
Some important points to keep in mind when deciding what education to obtain are:
• Is the continuing education related and directed towards EMS, and can it be proven?
• Is the training related to patient care or EMS operations?
• Will the training enhance the basic knowledge?
• Will the training benefit the participant, EMS agency, community, and the patients served?
Remember, additional CME hours when done through self study are limited to a maximum of 50% of the total non-core CME hours. Most firematic, police and military tactical training are not considered EMS related topics. If you have questions about what can and can not count for CME credit contact the BEMS central office. Continuing education credit may only be received for time the participant actually participates in the CME activity.
**THE 2018 TACTICAL EMS EXPO AND TRAINING SYMPOSIUM IS A PREHOSPITAL EMERGENCY CARE BASED CONFERENCE AND TRAINING EVENT. ALTHOUGH CERTAIN TOPICS MAY BE TAILORED TO THE DELIVERY OF DIRECT PATIENT CARE DURING THE COURSE OF FIREMATIC, MILITARY OR LAW ENFORCEMENT OPERATIONS THE CONTENT IS BASED ON BEST PRACTICES OF TIMELY AND EFFECTIVE DIRECT PATIENT CARE.
