Session Details

CAAHEP accreditation standards are based on the latest evidence and best practices in medical education. Until recently, this evidence has been gleaned from research literature and recommendations from EMS leadership organizations. Now the CoAEMSP is taking a lead role in conducting research on the impact of accreditation on student success and ultimately on EMS patient outcomes. How can Program Directors contribute to this evidence-based process? What research methods can be used to address specific issues like retention and student equity? Learn how individual programs can provide valuable data through the CAAHEP accreditation process that will eventually drive continuous improvements in education practices and Paramedic program accreditation standards.
