Refresh2021 and the Future of Online Education with Batt Chief Tom Bouthillet
What’s Your Emergency
During these challenging times (Aren't you sick of getting those emails?), Battalion Chief Tom Bouthillet saw an opportunity to improve EMT and Paramedic education and decided not to just watch it go by. The result was an entirely online education program that offered 30 hours of Continuing Credit Units for providers stuck at home due to Covid restrictions. And he didn't just read some slides on a cell phone camera and upload it to Youtube. Calling in heavy hitters in the Pre-Hospital world, Tom lined up the folks who literally wrote the book in their respective fields to give engaging presentations unlike the EMS profession has ever seen. HM and MC ask Chief Bouthillet: What was the inspiration behind Refresh2021? Why was the decision made to make the content free on ProdigyEMS.com? Who are some of the experts presenting at Refresh2021? Is this format the future for EMS education?

Tom Bouthillet, Lean and Fire Fighting (the Real Kind)
Lean Blog Interviews
In the Lean community (and in businesses and hospitals, as well), people often talk about "fire fighting" in a colloquial way. Today, my guest for episode #278 of the podcast is an actual professional fire fighter, Tom Bouthillet (@tbouthillet on Twitter). He serves as Fire Captain / Paramedic for the Hilton Head Island Fire Rescue where he is the Cardiac Care Program Manager (STEMI and CARES Site Coordinator). In this episode, we discuss the role of Lean and process improvement in fire departments and EMS, why blame is "completely ineffective" as a strategy, why "unsafe supervision" is a problem (and what that means), and why it's necessary to build in quality instead of just inspecting for quality.
