IAFCCP Sponsors Critical Care Track at EMS WORLD EXPO

Posted By Monica J. Newman, Friday, May 20, 2016

IAFCCP Sponsors Critical Care Track at EMS World Expo -

 

Workshops and Core Program Session CE


    Earn CE Appropriate for FP-C, CCP-C Certification Renewal

Certain workshops and core program sessions have been approved by the International Association of Flight & Critical Care Paramedics (IAFCCP), for continuing education activity appropriate for renewal of the Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C®) and/or Certified Critical Care Paramedic (CCP-C®) credential, from the International Board of Specialty Certification (IBSC). 

To make FP-C® and/or CCP-C® recertification credit identification easier, attend and participate in the sessions that are marked with the IAFCCP logo and keep track of those sessions throughout the conference. 

One CE is given per one-hour class. 1.25 credits are given per 75-minute class. Attendees can earn 8 credits for a full-day workshop.

Attendees can earn 13.5 hours of critical care CE appropriate for FP-C® for the 3-day core program and 16 hours for the TRACER course being hosted by IAFCCP on Oct 3–4. For that course, register online at www.astna.org or www.flightparamedic.org. Attendees can earn 13.5 hours of community paramedic CE appropriate for CCP-C® recertification for the 3-day core program and 8 hours for the Creating an Evidence-Based Practice for EMS in Integrated Healthcare workshop.

Exhibit Hall CE

Additional critical care and community paramedic CE activities can be obtained from identified vendors in the exhibit hall. Attendees will be required to visit vendors for an educational presentation and then complete a post test. To participate, visit the IAFCCP booth in the EMS World Expo exhibit hall for specific instructions. This activity is offered in association with Limmer Creative in the EMS World Expo exhibit hall.

Exhibit hall CE will earn between 0.1 and 0.5 credits per activity depending upon the complexity of the material and the time required.  After the conference, you will receive a CE certificate issued by the IAFCCP as a PDF file to your e-mail with a summary of your exhibit hall CE activity.  Submit this certificate, along with the EMS World Expo CE certificate and other necessary CE materials to the IBSC when your credential needs to be renewed. If you have questions or concerns, call 770/979-6372, or e-mail info@iafccp.org.

Certified Community Paramedic (CP-C) Exam

This exam will be offered at EMS World Expo. The expectation for the CP-C exam candidate is competency in mobile integrated healthcare and expanded EMS services in rural and urban settings, including various healthcare, mental health, and housing and social service needs. This examination is not meant to test entry-level knowledge, but rather to validate competency of those paramedics providing services beyond the roles of traditional emergency care and transport. For more, visit ibscertifications.org.

Event information and registration is available online at EMSWORLDEXPO.com.

Community Paramedic Exam (CP-C) Launched

Posted By Monica J. Newman, Thursday, January 21, 2016

Community Paramedicine is an emerging healthcare delivery model that increases access to basic services through the use of specially trained emergency medical service (EMS) providers in an expanded role. Community Paramedics care for patients at home or in other non-urgent settings outside of a hospital under the supervision of a physician or advanced practice provider. Community Paramedics can expand the reach of primary care and public health services by using EMS personnel to perform patient assessments. 

The CP-C exam process validates the essential knowledge and judgment required for safe and competent practice and allows programs to establish a baseline for competency of providers. 

Registration open NOW!

Posted By Monica J. Newman, Tuesday, April 09, 2013

PRESS RELEASE

 

April 9, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 

IAFCCP Launches Tim Hynes Foundation

 

AUSTIN, TX     The International Association of Flight & Critical Care Paramedics (IAFCCP) proudly announces the launch of the Tim Hynes Foundation. Through career development, access to education, and programs to improve leadership abilities, the Foundation is dedicated to reinforcing and advancing medical transport safety.

 

"The IAFCCP is committed to promotion of safety in our profession,” said IAFCCP President Chris Hall.  "Creation of the Tim Hynes Foundation carries this commitment forward in the transport community through financial support of campaigns, education, and best practices that enhance safety.”

 

On behalf of the Air Medical Crew Education Fund, Jon Gryniuk presented a check in the amount of $5,000, which was matched by Chairman Graham Pierce, of the Board for Critical Care Transport Paramedic Certification (BCCTPC), with a promise of an annual contribution.

 

As an inaugural fundraising event, the Foundation hosted the first annual Tim Hynes Foundation Golf Outing at the Barton Creek Golf Course in Austin, Texas ahead of the Critical Care Transport Medicine Conference (CCTMC). The fundraiser was supported and attended by numerous air medical professionals and industry leaders.

 

Tim Hynes was an IAFCCP founding member who was passionate about his profession. He lost his life in a rescue mission in 1998. "My dad devoted his life to doing what he loved. His job was never just a job to him. I think he would be proud of the work we will be doing with the foundation” remarked Jamie Kinder. Jamie joins John R. Clark and Jonathan Gryniuk on the Tim Hynes Foundation Board of Directors.

 

The foundation is a 501(c) (3) tax exempt organization supported by fellow philanthropic donations.
