Paramedic Chiefs of Canada – Leadership Strategies for Creating Low Stress High Resilience Organizations | Thursday, October 29thJenny Abercrombie
Providing EMS can be inherently stressful. Unfortunately, there are a lot of accidental, unnecessary, artificially created sources of stress that make the experience of working in EMS harder than it needs to be. In this session, we will explore (and shred) many traditional management practices that cause stress with little or no organizational benefit.
Mike Taigman has focused the majority of his career on helping make things better. As a street paramedic in Denver, he honed his clinical skills caring for patients and helping new paramedics learn to provide solid clinical care with kindness and compassion. As a popular conference educator, author of more than 600 articles in professional journals, and a multi decade Associate Professor in the graduate program in Emergency Health Services Management at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, he’s focused on helping professionals save more lives, reduce suffering, and be more effective leaders. As a consultant, Mike has worked with EMS, Fire, and Public Health in 48 of the 50 states, most of the Canadian Provinces, Israel, Palestine, Australia, and throughout Europe. His expertise includes EMS Street Survival, Patient Centered Leadership, and Effective Quality/Performance Improvement. He holds a Master’s Degree in Organizational Systems, is an Associate Professor for the graduate program in Emergency Health Services Management at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and is part of the faculty for the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.
