On Tuesday, May 15, the Missouri Center for Patient Safety sponsored its 3rd annual EMS Patient Safety Conference. More than 60 EMS agencies from across the state of Missouri were represented in Columbia by EMS personnel, gathering to learn the latest information on patient safety topics specific to their field.

Highlights of the day included speaker, Dr. Coy Callison, a leading researcher in communications from Texas Tech, who presented his latest findings regarding communication in the workplace and its important role in patient safety in EMS; Matt Zavadsky, a former paramedic and manager of private sector ambulance services, spoke of the importance of building processes related to vehicle response times and other safety issues in EMS within a “Just” culture. Attendees received a sneak peak at the recently released Just Culture EMS staff training materials provided by Outcome Engenuity. Those who attended received continuing education units.
