Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is a special and unique profession with many dedicated men and women. These professionals bring compassion, enthusiasm and dependability in often very challenging environments.

The Center for Patient Safety (CPS) is here to support EMS professionals and offer resources as well as tools to improve safety. The EMS Forward campaign provides ten topics to begin the discussion of patient safety:

  1. Patient Safety Culture
  2. Airway Management
  3. Bariatrics
  4. Behavioral Health
  5. Stretchers
  6. Medication Mistakes
  7. Pediatrics
  8. Provider Mental Health
  9. Crashes
  10. Transition of Care

At CPS, our focus is on learning what medical errors occur, why they occur and how to prevent patient harm. We emphasize the importance of a culture that promotes safe systems and safe individualized care, as well as strong teamwork and communication.

This campaign is consistent with our mission and focus as we support and promote safety in EMS. Together, we will help move #EMSForward. We invite you to engage in the conversation further on social media and watch for additional content to support the #EMSForward campaign!
