What's Going On
NASEMSO Program Manager Leslee Stein-Spencer, RN, MS, received the highest recognition ever offered to a civilian in the Chicago Fire Dept., when Fire Commissioner Jose Santiago officially named a new EMS award and the EMS Sim Lab in her honor. Going forward, the recipient of the Leslee Stein-Spencer Chazon Award of Visionary Excellence will be selected annually during EMS Week for their ability to conceive, implement, and execute a program that improves EMS training, EMS response, or patient care outcomes. In addition to her health and medical preparedness work with NASEMSO, Stein-Spencer has served as Director for the Medical Administration and Regulatory Compliance (MARC) Division of the Chicago Fire Dept. for more than 10 years. Prior to that, she served with distinction as the Illinois State EMS Director, and was recently recognized by the Illinois Dept. of Public Health at the 2017 Integrated Public Health and Healthcare System Preparedness Summit with the Director's Lifetime Achievement Award. Congratulations, Leslee!
NASEMSO Program Manager Rachael Alter, EMT, QAS, has been published in the Journal of Prehospital Emergency Care. She is an author of the article, “Medical Oversight, Educational Core Content, and Proposed Scopes of Practice of Wilderness EMS Providers: A Joint Project Developed by Wilderness EMS Educators, Medical Directors, and Regulators Using a Delphi Approach.” (See abstract online.) The article reports on the results of the National Association of EMS Physicians Wilderness EMS Committee’s project to define the educational core content supporting scopes of practice of wilderness EMS providers and the conditions when wilderness EMS providers should be required to have medical oversight. This core content is a foundation for wilderness EMS provider scopes of practice and builds on both the National EMS Education Standards and the National EMS Scope of Practice Model, which is currently being revised under the auspices of NASEMO through an NHTSA grant. Congratulations, Rachael, on the publication.
NASEMSO Program Manager Kevin McGinnis, MPS, QAS, has been selected to serve on the new Rural EMS Advisory Council being organized by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), which improve access to quality healthcare in rural communities. The purpose of the Rural EMS Advisory Council will be to inform FORHP on EMS issues and to provide an outside perspective on related grant programs. Congratulations, Kevin, on this appointment.
