Ethics and Leadership in EMS: A View from the State House-Susan Bailey
The EMS profession seems to lack the respect other public service agencies and healthcare professions receive. Who and/or what is responsible for this? Perhaps we should take responsibility for the way we are perceived by others. We must earn the respect we receive from other public safety agencies, healthcare professionals, and the public we serve. This session will reveal observations from a state regulatory agency. The respect issues and the possible causes will be identified, and prospective solutions will be discussed.
1. Receive the respect issues that have been observed;
2. Appreciate the EMS practitioners may be responsible for the perception of the EMS profession;
3. Learn how to improve the EMS image by implementing ethics and leadership into the profession;
