2 NEW EMS Courses: Special Challenges in Patient Assessment & PCR Essentials

Effectively assessing a patient's medical needs and appropriately documenting care are essential components for all EMS providers.

Vector Solutions is proud to announce two new EMS/CAPCE courses to our Vector LMS course library for EMS that address overcoming challenges while assessing patients and essential aspects to keep in mind when documenting patient care.

Special Challenges in Patient Assessment

Performing a thorough and accurate assessment can save a patient's life. However, in some cases, the difficulty of performing an accurate assessment and taking a thorough patient history increases. Emergency providers need the skills to effectively work around challenges, such as language barriers, mental illness, and trapped patients, to initiate and complete an appropriate patient assessment to ensure successful care and positive outcomes.

Take this course on patient assessment challenges to learn how to:

Special Challenges in Patient Assessment

  • describe the elements of successful patient assessment

Patient Care Report Essentials

As a legal document which details all care and treatments for a patient, PCRs are a critical mechanism conveyed to hospitals, your agency, other state and local agencies, and federal stakeholders. Furthermore, PCRs are how your agency gets reimbursed for EMS activations, response, treatment, and patient transport to an appropriate facility. This document lives on, often in perpetuity, per your agency's and your state's recordkeeping requirements. Understanding the fundamentals of PCRs is critical for all emergency responders.

  • review important aspects and considerations regarding EMS patient care reports
