The NJ Office of EMS is proud to announce the NJ Statewide Conference on EMS!
This exciting, state-of-the-art conference has been designed to provide Emergency Medical Services personnel with educational opportunities that reflect current medical knowledge and practice. The goal is to give the provider the tools to enhance patient care and reinforce procedures critical for smooth and efficient on-scene operations. The conference offers over 100 sessions, presented by subject matter experts. Sessions are divided into clearly defined tracks for the EMS administrator, EMS educator, basic and advanced life support provider, school nurse, and those with a particular interest in pediatrics, emergency preparedness, or quality improvement so that individuals may pursue specific areas of interest. The conference is designed for flexibility to allow you to select continuing education topics in the areas that are important to you.
The Statewide Conference is more than just classroom sessions! Come cheer for your favorite team as they face the human simulator at the annual “NJ Sim Games”. Watch as BLS and ALS teams go head-to-head managing critically ill or injured patients while trying to clinch the number one spot and bragging rights as the top team of NJ SIM Games!
