The path to delivering safe and high-quality patient care requires a culture which embraces constant change. As we continue to undertake overhauls in the organization and financing of healthcare, providers will be tested in a dynamic and uncertain environment. All of this change, uncertainty, and the very nature of the work we do brings with it stresses among the front-line medical teams as well as the leadership. Stress can often build over time and go unnoticed until it is an acute situation. Ensuring we have programs in place to identify early warning signs, and mechanisms to support individuals is becoming a necessity to ensure we are taking care of those that dedicate their lives to taking care of others. Our Spring meeting topics will all touch on varying aspects of this very important human aspect of the work we do.

ACCT is pleased to recognize Leonardo Helicopters for their continuing funding and organization of the Third EMS Symposium focusing on the futures of integrated medical transport.

This year's event will take place June 6-8 in Kansas City, MO. Building from the two previous symposia in Chicago and Naples we will again look at the role of critical care transport, as an adhesive thread in the development of integrated health care systems.

The Symposium is an invitation only event using an interrogatory and interactive dialogue format between invited participants and a series of expert international panels of international healthcare, risk, and aviation leaders. Each panel will include short presentations followed by moderated questions followed by full participant round table discussion.

The Association of Critical Care Transport released the first Standards for Critical Care Transport whitepaper at its Leadership Development Series and Annual Meeting on Oct. 13 in Dallas.

“The Standards whitepaper is the culmination of four years of work by Association members representing critical care transport organizations across North America,” said Denise Landis, ACCT’s chairperson.

Despite continuing worldwide growth in the provision of high-acuity air and ground medical transport, there has been no consensus definition and agreed-upon Standards of practice for patient-centered critical care transport.

The ACCT Board of Directors gathered in Kansas City, MO last week to conduct the 2016 ACCT Strategic Planning process.
