NOSORH, the Joint Committee on Rural Emergency Care, and the National Association of State EMS Officials would like to thank all who helped make the 2018 National Rural EMS & Care Conference a resounding success in Tucson, Arizona! Together with the Arizona Office of Rural Health, over 100 participants attended the conference for two full days of engaging sessions. Attendees were presented with topics ranging from new EMS payments models, to different approaches to tribal and frontier paramedicine projects, to a panel of state EMS directors, and more.
NOSORH will be compiling and sharing the information gleaned from the working lunch discussion focused on what EMS can do when a rural hospital is facing closure into a toolkit later this year.
All conference resources, including presentations from the meeting, will be available here on the NOSORH website by May 7th.
