Quality is part of everyone’s responsibility – but it’s particularly important for those in management and leadership positions to lead the way. The problem is that most people in EMS, including those with ‘quality’ in their job titles, have not had much if any significant training in quality management. While there are some courses out there on EMS quality, they are few and far between and some of them cost several thousands of dollars to attend by the time you figure in registration, travel, hotel and per diem costs to attend. Other ‘generic’ quality management classes are available, but the content and examples can be difficult to relate back to EMS if you have not had any prior training.
Take advantage of this opportunity to invest in your education and professional development with quality management classes specifically designed for EMS professionals.
