#PWChat Recap – Communication & Integration in Emergency Medicine: Has Anything Changed in 30 Years?

Physician’s Weekly co-hosted another installment of the #PWChat series on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, with PW blogger Matthew Loxton, MKM, CKM.

The discussion was based on a previous article on whether communication and integration in emergency medicine has improved in the past 30 years since Loxton’s days as an EMT. Topics discussed included whether facts are still lost in the handoff between EMTs/paramedics and emergency department staff, whether time is still wasted in getting ambulance crews turned around, whether there are still missed opportunities for hospital staff to be better prepared for incoming emergency patients, and much more!
