The National Council on Aging and the U.S. Administration for Community Living has selected the Community-FIT – CARES paper (Assessment of Fall Related Emergency Medical Service Calls and Transports after a Community Level Fall Prevention Initiative) and partnership with the Upper Arlington Fire Division as one of four EMS-Academic partnerships they will be showcasing on a national scale for their fall prevention efforts this year. Dr. Catherine Quatman-Yates and Dr. Carmen Quatman will discuss their work and partnerships to develop and implement an effective model for community paramedicine engagement in fall prevention. This recognition is not only a great honor, but a huge leap towards getting more support and promoting policy change at the national level.
The webinar series called “Fire and Falls” will be held on September 1, 8, 15, and 22 at 1:00PM. Definitely check out the webinar on September 8 as it will feature the fantastic CARES paramedicine program that is based out of central Ohio.
