Insights from EMS Educators: EMSWorld Expo 2016

EMSWorld Expo is not only an opportunity for faculty and students to learn about industry dynamics, but it also allows vendors and distributors to better understand challenges facing EMS programs. Getting this understanding is vital so that companies like Pocket Nurse can be part of the solution for EMS programs and careers.

Expos and conferences such as EMSWorld Expo allow attendees to immerse themselves in conversation with practitioners, instructors, and educators when attending workshops, seminars, and meetings throughout these multi-day events.

The most common issue Pocket Nurse heard about at this year’s EMS World Expo was the concern about working with expired medications for educational purposes. EMS educators brought up the risks of using expired meds in simulation over and over again. Fortunately, Pocket Nurse has an easy solution to this: our proprietary line of simulated medication Demo Dose®. To learn more about medication management solutions for instructors, see our blog post. With more than 470 realistic vials, pills, and IV injection solutions, Demo Dose is safe and effective to use in EMS classrooms and training scenarios.

Pocket Nurse also came away from EMS World Expo with the support of many industry leaders, including EMS World, JEMS, NAEMSE, and the UCLA Center for Prehospital Care. By listening to these future partners and through introductions to new vendors, we are looking forward to offering more EMS-specific products for education and simulation.
