The Real MCIs in Our Systems with Dr. Neal Richmond (part 2)

Dr. Neal Richmond, MD
Dr. Neal Richmond, MD

In the second half of the call that started in part one last week, Dr. Neal Richmond discusses an example of understanding the real mechanics and psychological aspects of working in the field out of a classroom. He discusses helping providers understand the tiny incremental changes they need to implement to improve something like cardiac arrest survival in their communities.

We also discuss the importance of training across the systems that will respond in a community. Whether it be mutual aid organizations or split Fire/EMS departments who only interact on relatively few calls. Multi-agency training is an essential part of managing critical patients.
There is also a discussion on the merits of ongoing refresher training to maintain infrequently used skills. We can’t expect emergency responders to understand how to do the things they need to do without giving them the tools and opportunities to practice them.
If you want to reach out to Dr. Neal Richmond to find about how your system can improve the metrics they track and the QA systems you use, email him at [email protected].
Make sure you join us for part two of this informative episode next week.
