    The Florida Department of Health will once again be conducting an annual EMS Leadership Orientation. This training will be held at the Doubletree by Hilton – Palm Beach Gardens on April 24th, 25th and 26th.  The purpose of this program is to orientate new and current EMS leaders to relevant EMS topics and issues. This year’s leadership orientation will once again be integrated with the EMS Advisory Council. This method provides the attendee an opportunity to network with EMS leaders and see how the concepts taught are directly applied to the statewide EMS system. There will be no costs for this course and there will be 10 hours of CEU and a course completion certificate awarded for full attendance.

    • Webcast

    First Coast’s guidelines regarding the provision and approval of ambulance services have recently been revised with the intention of consolidating and clarifying expectations and requirements relating to these services. In addition, a new review strategy, called Targeted Probe and Education (TPE), is now being applied by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. During this webcast we want to make sure ambulance providers are familiar with and prepared for this new approach. We will also address the recent change to the Medicare card and keep providers updated with this transition.
