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!
