Heather Davis

Learning the hundreds of drugs encountered in EMS on patient calls seems nearly impossible to students and teaching them is often painful to instructors. This presenter has developed a method of teaching that includes a schedule, lesson plans, guided practice, quizzes and a memory and classification system for students and instructors. If teaching pharmacology is your responsibility, then this session is a must!

Session 4a: 1230-1330

Everything you do as an educator either contributes to excellence among your students or tears it down. Do you wish students wanted to work harder? Wanted to be the best? You can make them want it! This session will make sense of the science behind human motivation and show you how that research can be applied to our classrooms. Many of the techniques behind peak performance are very easy to implement. Why not give your students a fighting chance at greatness? After all, each one of them is a reflection of you!

Session 4b: 1230-1330

EMS providers interact with individuals throughout their communities, from the most affluent to the least advantaged. It is important that these providers understand how social determinants of health (SDoH) including a person’s social interactions, physical environment, access to health services, and other societal factors may impact a person’s wellbeing.  EMS educators can incorporate these lessons into their classrooms to encourage future EMTs, AEMTs, and paramedics to recognize the social and health inequities which may have led to a person’s poor health status.
