Missouri AEMT Webinar
MEMSA & MAA hosted a webinar on AEMTs that featured a panel that included service directors from Kansas who utilize AEMTs, an AEMT instructor, the Bureau of EMS to describe the current laws/regulations, and Missouri EMS administrators who discussed what they are seeking to do in their region.
Missouri law allows AEMTs to provide advanced life support care. CMS and private insurance companies often allow for billing at the ALS level if an AEMT is present. AEMTs can help fill the gap created by the shortage of paramedics.
Learn more from the recording below and see if maybe incorporating AEMTs into your workforce might be part of the answer to the paramedic shortage.
Presented on 11/03/2021. View the recording here.

Feedback on Pre-Hospital Trauma Training
The Missouri College of Emergency Physicians (MOCEP) is the charter organization for the International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) program in Missouri. ITLS is a global not-for-profit organization dedicated to preventing death and disability from trauma through education and emergency trauma care. ITLS is accepted internationally as the standard training course for pre-hospital trauma care. Not only are courses taught as a continuing education option, but they are also used as essential curricula in many paramedic, EMT and first responder training programs.The Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association (MEMSA) has partnered with Missouri ITLS and is requesting feedback from EMS agencies around the state regarding pre-hospital trauma training to see if there is a need for additional training options and instructors.
