Are we still doing things this way and, if so, why? Our world is ever evolving, and things need to change, but that means working out our differences. Let’s talk about the everyday conflict we encounter and make things more "fluid" to let this change take place.

EMS During Civil Disobedience Events

Events involving demonstrations and protests disrupt normal EMS operations and require a coordinated medical response with properly trained and oriented personnel who can move on a moment’s notice and in accordance with a special command and control structure. Planning and capabilities to support Civil Disobedience Units and other law enforcement assets during these special events require a high level of coordination between all public safety entities and the medical system. Traditional EMS training does not account for operating in these dangerous and fast-changing environments and is not generally adequate to support these challenging situations. This course will address these differences and how EMS can support the needs of both law enforcement and the entire community during civil disturbances and unrest.

Identifying and Responding to Human Trafficking

Recent research found that there are an estimated 313,000 victims of human trafficking in Texas alone. National estimates suggest that 87.8% of victims of human trafficking come in contact with healthcare providers. However, most tools to identify victims of human trafficking are designed for social service and clinical environments. Many of these tools require more time than feasible in an EMS setting due to the nature of the questions. Others require a strong rapport or previously developed client trust before the measure can be administered. None of the available instruments are appropriate for use in the EMS setting. This course will present a critical analysis of the current tools available, the latest findings from mixed-methods research on the development and validation of a tool for use by medical first responders, and a protocol to assist victims of human trafficking into the appropriate networks of care.
