Maine EMS is proud to announce the release of its “LGBTQIA+ Cultural Humility Overview for EMS” course on MEMSEd. As healthcare professionals, we must do our best to ensure that ALL patients interacting with our system feel as comfortable and safe as possible. This self-paced course works to raise awareness about language, terminology, and stigma associated with the LGBTQIA+ community and insight into relevant pearls of medical information that will assist EMS clinicians with care for some patients identifying with this community. Completion of the course is worth CEHs: 1.5 hrs Prep/Ops (1.5 hours NCCP At-Risk Populations) and 0.5 hrs Medical (0.5 hours NCCP Special Healthcare Needs).
