Transport Team Accreditation: Are You Ready?
The American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Transport Medicine Webinar Series presents: Transport Team Accreditation: Are You Ready?
Transport team providers always wish to render safe and effective transport for their patients. The Commission on Accreditation of Transport Services (CAMTS) provides an opportunity for transport team providers to go through a peer-reviewed process that allows them to “measure” their performance with international standards formulated by medical providers from their member organizations, e.g. the AAP, to improve in the areas of education, training, quality management, and safety. Many transport teams are reluctant go through accreditation because the process is often perceived as unachievable or punitive. In fact, the process is meant to be a workable experience whereby teams can continually “raise the bar” above that which they have already achieved.
The session will be led by Dr. Richard Orr who is well-published in transport medicine and who currently serves as Vice Chair for CAMTS..
