Innovation and Research

To continue to push the boundaries of the EMS world, we require evidence-based practice, outcomes and data to trump industry anecdote and tradition. To progress we can’t simply hide behind the mantra that “We have always done it that way.” Organizations should consider researching, collaborating, capturing and presenting studies and good practices. It doesn’t have to be major projects or massive patient studies, but perhaps a series of “small cycle testing” that relies on a “Plan,  Do, Study, Act” (PDSA) cycle. Large change can occur from small tests. Writing these up, complete with supporting evidence, can effect change not only in the researchers’ organizations, but in the wider industry.
