Nominations must be submitted online and are due on May 31.

TCD Discussion FORUM
In Missouri, we have a TCD system that should be the envy of the country and is instead very troubled. How we got here is a long story, and there is plenty of blame to pass around, but we also have a good chance to make some serious improvements to the program.
The Director of the Dept. of Health and Senior Services has established a committee to address problems with the TCD system in Missouri. MEMSA will be posting meeting summaries and other items of interest on our new TCD discussion page. Feel free to read over the materials provided and make comments if you want.
Improvements will only come from the engagement of people who see what a great TCD system can mean for the patients we serve.

In 2017 Governor Greitens directed all Missouri agencies to review the present regulations and consider which ones might be eliminated. That process continues under Governor Parson. As part of that general discussion, SAC (State Advisory Council on EMS) has been reviewing all the core EMS regulations in order to provide recommendations to the DHSS. SAC is hosting a series of meetings to seek input on the current EMS regulations. Those meetings times and places are posted on the BEMS website https://health.mo.gov/safety/ems/. As revisions are made, drafts are posted on the MEMSA website and open for further comment.
The goal of the SAC is to get consensus within the industry prior to submitting recommended changes to the DHSS for their consideration.
The discussion forum on our website is an informal process separate from the official process DHSS and the Secretary of State conduct, but this is the best and easiest way to engage and review regulations that were written in 1998. What should be updated, changed, added, dropped, re-worded to clarify, etc.
EMS is nearing completion of its review. The process for DHSS to move the regulations revisions forward can be arduous so final approval will not be immediate but we believe streamlined regulations will be a big improvement when we get to the finish line.
Please spend a few minutes looking over the state EMS regulations and visit the new draft posted on the regulation page of our website. Please leave your comments and suggestions on these topics in our discussion forum.
