NAEMT

NAEMT’s groundbreaking, 8-hour Advanced Geriatric Education for Emergency Medical Services (AGEMS) course builds on the GEMS core course, delving into more complex, realistic scenarios and the unique technology EMS practitioners are likely to encounter when assessing, treating, and transporting older adults.
 
Older adults remain the largest single consumer of health care resources. For increasing numbers of older people in society, the emergency medical services practitioner is the only health care worker, outside of the emergency department, who is immediately available to assist the older person in crisis 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Advanced Geriatric Education for Emergency Medical Services expands on the Geriatric Education for Emergency Medical Services core course, delving into more complex scenarios and addressing the unique devices that emergency medical services practitioners are likely to encounter when assessing, treating, and transporting older adults. 
 
The Advanced Geriatric Education for Emergency Medical Services Course Workbook contains resources that participants will utilize during the advanced course, including: 

  • Notes sections to fill-in as needed during lecture presentations and skill stations
  • Patient charts to accompany the scenarios introduced in each lecture presentation
  • Illustrations and photographs to help participants visualise key equipment discussed in the skill stations
