Notes

THE NEED

According to NAEMT: “EMS practitioners face challenging and traumatic events that can impact their mental well-being every day. The mounting effect of patient needs, family, long workdays, nutrition, physical health, and sleep deprivation all contribute to an individual’s sense of wellness. Paramedics and EMTs responding to the COVID-19 pandemic have also experienced increased stress levels over concerns about exposure to the virus, self-quarantines, and the health and safety of their families”.[1]

 

In response, with help of Pennsylvania State Senator Katie Muth and a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Community and Economic Development, Montgomery County Emergency Service is offering Leadership Training: Managing Stress and Trauma.

 

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

Participants will:

  1. Gain a better understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses that influence leadership performance.
  2. Improve their ability to recognize the signs of stress and trauma to facilitate appropriate interventions.
  3. Achieve a greater level of self-confidence to positively influence the behaviors of others in the interest of EMS wellness.
  4. Contribute to the reduction of negative outcomes from stress and trauma.

CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION

A Certificate of Completion  (20 PA EMS Continuation Education Credits) will be awarded to those who attended all scheduled sessions and pass a final exam. An “Advanced Certificate of Completion” (four clinical credits) will be awarded to those who have completed the requirements for a Certificate of Completion and submitted a successful case study under the guidance of their coach.
