Ch-Ch-Check It Out: Not Just Another Thing On Your "To-Do" List

Sarah Barber, FP-C, BS in Psychology
Quality Management Manager
Life Flight Network
Kari Zabala, RRT, FP-C, NRP
Director of Clinical Education
Life Flight Network

Checklists are ubiquitous in both the aviation industry and the healthcare industry, so it is no surprise that they have a place in air medical transport. However, understanding the nuances of checklist development, including content, length, order and more, will help leadership teams create more effective checklists and ensure that staff actually use them. A case study will highlight how a collaborative effort by the Quality Management Department and the Clinical Department at Life Flight Network designed a checklist to address the recurrent issue of medical equipment being left behind. Shared data will demonstrate the difference in forgotten equipment events before and after the implementation of the checklist. Ultimately, using the right checklist at the right time can prevent errors of all variety and contribute to crew and patient safety.

A recording of this session will be available shortly.

Improving Employee Retention: A Successful Program Through the Eyes of an Employee

Ryan Kelley, BSN, RN, CFRN, LP, FP-C, NR-P, Flight Nurse/ Paramedic, Clinical Educator; HALO-Flight Inc.

Staffing shortages are prevalent in nearly every healthcare profession, but most notable are the vacancies within the nursing and EMS professions. Recruitment and retention is a hot-topic within the air medical industry and there is an ever decreasing pool at which to recruit nurses and medics from. But once hired, how does a flight service retain their nurses and paramedics for the "long-haul" in addition to fostering a culture of giving back to the organization and the community they serve? In this lecture hear from a current Flight Paramedic/ RN (not a supervisor or manager) of one such organization that has a successful track record of employee retention, low turnover, and how you can institute some of these practices in your flight service.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify current workforce shortages affecting the air medical industry and factors contributing to these shortages.
  2. Articulate why employees leave their current employment for perceived better work environments.
  3. Identify reasons employees remain at organizations long term and how HALO-Flight retains nurses and paramedics long-term.

Monday, December 4th from 12:30 - 1:00pm ET  
Transport Teams in Crisis: A multicenter survey of pediatric-neonatal
transport teams that can be applied to yours

Archana V. Dhar, MD, FAAP
Medical Director of Transport
Children's Health System
Carol Hasty, MS, RN
Community Liaison
Children's Health

This session will discuss a study that was designed to document the impact of the pandemic on pediatric and neonatal transport team members with a focus on staffing and resilience promotion strategies. The study came from a short cross-sectional survey distributed to members of the AAP Section on Transport Medicine and was published in 2023 in the Air Medical Journal.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss the national impact of the pandemic on this highly specialized niche workforce of pediatric-neonatal transport team staff.
  2. Define and describe the extent of unfilled vacancies in this specialized workforce. List the strategies that the teams in the U.S utilize to identify burnout.
  3. Describe the strategies that the pediatric-neonatal teams in the U.S utilize for retention.

Wednesday, December 6, 2023 from 3 - 3:30 pm ET  
Does Anyone Actually Get 8 Hours of Sleep?
Real World Resilience for Real World Providers

James C. Boomhower, MS(c), FP-C, C-NPT, NRP, CCISM
Critical Care Transport Specialist/ Peer Support Coordinator, Boston MedFlight

We all know what we're "supposed" to do. Sleep 8 hours a night, exercise 20-30 minutes per day, and eat all of our veggies. But what does that actually look like for individuals with professional and personal lives that simply don't allow that to happen? In this presentation, we're going to discuss how we can still promote wellness and resilience without asking ourselves and our colleagues to meet such impractical goals. We're going to boil down the "need to have", the "nice to have", and the "good to have when you can get it"; all in an effort to help you take the stress out of wellness.

Learning Objectives:
  1. List wellness pearls are universal, and list those that are not necessary for every person to have all of the time.
  2. Demonstrate the effectiveness of "resting" as a surrogate for sleeping.
  3. Describe their own individual resilience and wellness plan, along with acknowledging that this plan will flow and change over time..



Additional webinar dates will be announced over the coming weeks
as well as the availability of online recordings.
