Transport Systems Practitioner Competency Profile - Stakeholder Feeback Session

Synopsis:

At a national symposium entitled “Transport Systems moving our Children across Systems – Challenges, Barriers and Enablers”, held at CAPHC’s 2008 Annual Conference in Edmonton, conference delegates identified the need to develop national standards for the inter-facility transport of critically ill newborns, children and youth.  Many of the people receiving this email will have been at that 2008 session.

As a result of that session CAPHC established a National Transport Systems Steering Committee comprised of multidisciplinary experts from across the country that began to address this issue.

In June 2010, the Transport Systems Steering Committee initiated two working groups to develop specific national standards. The Practitioner Profile Working Group, a team of Canadian neonatal and paediatric medical transport experts, was established to define and recommend a set of minimum standards for Canadian medical transport practitioners.

This webinar from March 6, 2012 from 12:00 to 1:30 ET will share the CAPHC Transport Systems' Competencies Profile - Interfacility Critical Care Transport of Maternal, Neonatal and Paediatric Patients.

This Transport Competencies Profile represents our final draft recommendations for a minimum set of standards for Canadian medical transport teams.  The final draft can viewed on the CAPHC Knowledge Exchange Network at:  http://links.caphc.org/transportcompetenciesdoc

During this hour long session we will hear a presentation describing the objectives of this project and the process that was followed to develop these competencies.  Following the presentation, we will turn to our webinar participants for an interactive feedback session, all of which will be used by the committee to finalize the document.
