Facebook is chalked full of EMS-related musings. GhettoMedic. EMS1. Paramedic as F***. Nocturnal Medics. While all of us find some brevity and relief from the stress of the job by subscribing to feeds like this, what are we doing to sharpen our skills as clinicians or finding ways to promote mental health? Not only that, but what are we doing to the community’s perception of paramedicine? This episode is dedicated to talking about what we use personally to aid us in our educational endeavors, as well as keep our sanity. So, here we go!

SOAPBOX MINUTE WITH MIKE

Bottom line… Our communities hold us to a high standard. When they call for help, they are asking for competent, professional medics that are capable of handling a bevy of situations. We owe it to the public, the profession, and to ourselves to deliver. Information is at our fingertips; all we have to do is grasp it.
