ATTENTION EMS providers & fire departments:

The QI Committee encourages squads to review audit criteria at your EMS training.  Due to the mandate for EMS/Fire Depts. to start Trauma QI, we suggest using GMVEMS Quality Improvement Audit Program & Criteria as a guide.  Remember, to involve your medical advisor as an active participant of your department QI Committee.  You are encouraged and welcomed to bring your QI to our meetings.
