Should EMS Just Train For The Street?

Study5With new training guidelines and increased classroom times. It seems that new students coming out of paramedic school are not as prepared as they should be. Topics like safety and documentation are often glossed over.

Too many times we hear instructors say “This isn’t the way we do it in the street…”

There seems to be a gap between classroom and field or real life training. This gap appears to be widening and sending new providers out into the real world of EMS either not prepared or terrified of what to expect.

Is too much time being spent on topics not geared toward EMS? Is there not enough time focused on what is needed to operate as a paramedic in the field out of paramedic class?

This week Josh and I talk about this and are joined in the chat room by John Broyles and Scott from EMS in the New Decade.
