How EMS1 Chooses Content

This weeks podcast is joined by EMS1.com’s Greg Friese. Greg took some time with Jim to discuss just how a big EMS site like EMS1.com chooses content to show it’s readers.

This was a very interesting episode and will give you a behind the scenes peek at where all that content and subject matter comes from when you click on that EMS1 link.

Plus Greg and Jim talk about click bait headlines and the idea of when a subject is “too soon”.

Giving Patients An Unfair Advantage

When you prepare beyond your basic training and knowledge you are giving your patients an unfair advantage. This is good for them of course but great for you as well.

It’s unfair unfortunately because many EMS providers just do the minimum to get certified and get a job. But as you know, EMS is more than just a job. There are so many moving parts and you should be understanding them all thoroughly.

Doing that will give your patients that advantage they need. Take a listen to this weeks episode and see what I mean.

Quick Let’s Get Rid Of The IO Needles

Is Turnover Hurting EMS?

Is EMS the stepping stone to other professions? Do providers leave EMS to pursue better career options when they find so few in EMS. Sometimes its not about pay. It can be about career movement, job satisfaction and options for the long haul.

Is teaching and supervisory positions the only rungs in the ladder?

What’s Your EMS Super Hero Power?

As EMS professionals we have to know a wide range of topics and be proficient at many various skills. However a lot of us have super powers. What I mean by that is we all have certain skills or topics that we are very good at, that we have mastered.
