Professor Todd Olmstead is directing a policy research project with students aimed at rethinking the delivery of pre-hospital emergency care.According to Olmstead, ambulance transportation and emergency department visits are expensive and may not be the most cost-effective ways to seek treatment. Olmstead wants his students to become familiar with EMS culture through standard practices such as assigned readings, but also interactive experiences including ambulance ride-alongs, guest speakers, and listening to 911 calls. Throughout the year, the students taking the PRP will brainstorm alternate points of contact and protocols for improving patient-centered, out-of-hospital care.
