The annual conference of the Ontario Paramedic Association for Paramedics, Paramedic Students and anyone interested in the future of pre-hospital and out-of-hospital care in Ontario.
Please share information on the conference with others as space is limited.
The conference audience includes Paramedics, Paramedic Students, Educators, Managers and anyone interested in the future of pre-hospital and out-of-hospital care in Ontario.
Conference attendees want to learn about unique, state of the art, cutting-edge subjects and to earn continuing education based on core medical, trauma and education topics.
Format & Session Length
Conference education sessions are offered in 1 hour blocks – approximately 45 minutes for the workshop / presentation followed by a 15 minute question period. Pre-conference workshops will be offered in 4 hour and 8 hour blocks on Friday, November 6th; these workshops have separate registration fees.
Topics & Sessions
We are requesting proposals for innovative and unique topics, as well as core curriculum, for the following four conference tracks:
Patient Care These sessions are designed to cover crucial core concepts and techniques relevant to enhancing the knowledge base of the Paramedic.
Research These sessions are designed to spotlight research techniques as well as current research relevant to out-of-hospital providers.
Education These sessions may include a variety of topics from enhancing presentation techniques to improving the learning environment. The workshop or presentation may include basic and advanced subjects for college educators, Paramedic services and Base Hospital educators.
Specialty Topics These sessions are targeted for the non-traditional EMS provider and can be tailored to the basic or advanced level. The workshop or presentation may include current ideas for responding to unique situations encountered in the field and other issues not typically addressed in the core knowledge sessions.The following two tabs change content below.Paramedic, educator, researcherAlan is a critical care paramedic, paramedic educator and prehospital researcher, currently working around the world as an educator and researcher.
