“Train as we work” — National Disaster Medical System

It seems like simulation and practice is in the air these days. Not just from my posts (McKinsey on simulation, Football-on-Football on practice), but now in the Facebook feed of one of my friends, Lee Turpen. Lee is a thought leader in the EMS community and attends the annual Gathering of Eagles, which is the nickname of the EMS State of the Sciences Conference.

TraumaTrainingSure enough, simulation and realistic practice came up on day one. Lee pointed me to a presentation from Andrew Garrett of the Health and Human Services Department. He gave an update on the National Disaster Medical System.

In case you needed more nudging, check out slides 7 and 8: “Full Context, Full Speed Training” and “Train as we Fight (Work).” That says it all.
