Learn how you can help each other out by knowing the Risk Factors, Warning Signs, Prevention Tools and how to reach out to a colleague in need.
Talks Saves Lives: for Physicians, Nurses, EMTs, Respiratory Therapists and other medical professionals in the frontline of responding to the Covid-19 Pandemic. This is a one-hour program that will be offered via Zoom to groups up to 25 registrants.

The NYS Bureau of EMS and Trauma Systems is developing and enhancing content for its learning management system, Vital Signs Academy.  At this time, the Bureau seeks presenters who would be interested in developing and submitting content to be offered on their LMS.

Instructors who are interested in submitting content should do so as follows:

  1. Submit a presentation of your choice, which would consist of an hour-long session for an on-line presentation. The session would be 45 – 50 minutes in length with a 10 – 15-minute time frame at the end of the session for question and answers.
  2. Submit a 10-question quiz.
  3. Please note, the hour-long presentation will be converted into three (3) 15-minute sessions to create the online content.

The Bureau will review the submitted materials and, if selected, will contact the instructor to schedule the live webinar presentation.

All submissions and questions should be directed to Jennifer Buonanno at Jennifer.buonanno@health.ny.gov.
