EDE Core is an intense 1-day hands-on workshop designed for PARAMEDICS ONLY to complete the practical training component of their introductory course in point-of-care ultrasound. This course is not appropriate for other health professionals and registrations will be cancelled for other health professionals.
An online mandatory precourse must be completed before the course day so we can focus on maximum time at bedside with hands-on probe training. We have maximized the instructor and machine ratios to ensure you keep scanning. It is suggested to schedule a minimum of 10 hours to complete the precourse.
In this course, we will cover point-of-care detection of;
Please note that this course will NOT cover Intrauterine Pregnancy – Transvaginal & Transabdominal Detection

Threat Management Pre-conference will run 0900 - 1600hrs (with 1hr lunch break) if it has the full 12 participants.
Over the past few years the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) has seen an alarming increase in incidents of violence towards its members resulting in physical and mental health related injuries. Analysis of this trend identified a clear need for training for staff in the management of threatening and violence situations. In response to this need, WFPS consulted with subject matter experts in law enforcement and responder safety to create the Threat Management training program.
Threat Management focuses on reality based training using scenarios with live role players. These scenarios create stress responses in participants allowing them to practice assessment and decision making in situations mimicking real life situations. The program focuses on areas such as:
Feedback from staff on the Threat Management program has been overwhelmingly positive with many staff reporting significant changes to their practice. The goal moving forward is for this training to better equip our staff with the tools to manage threatening and violent incidents and decrease the incidents of employee mental and physical injury.

The preconference Research Symposium welcomes expert and novice researchers as well as anyone who is curious about research in general. This day, dedicated to building research capacity within paramedicine, is being hosted by the McNally Project, a community, of and for, paramedic researchers. The morning will provide an opportunity to rotate through small group research topic tables led by paramedics with varying areas of expertise. Topic tables will be followed by Rapid Fire Oral and Poster Presentations and a chance to engage with presenters and network. There is no cost to attending the Research Symposium and coffee and lunch will be provided so join us and learn a bit more about how we are influencing change within our profession.
Beyond the NOCP – developing a new competency framework for paramedics in Canada
The Paramedic Association of Canada with the support of the CSA Group is developing a new standard CSA Z1660: National Occupational Standard for Paramedics (NOSP). This standard will revise and replace the 2011 National Occupational Competency Profile, and will support paramedics, eductaors and employers by providing competency requirements and guidance to perform occupational roles. As part of the development process, we will host a town-hall meeting at PACE2022. This will be an opportunity for paramedics and others from across Canada to meet members of the development group, hear the latest updates on the NOSP development, as well as contribute their thoughts on what the NOSP should look like. In addition, we will seek input from attendees on suggestions for the competencies and activities of work that paramedics perform as part of this event.

In this presentation, we will address the need for an ethical framework to guide paramedic decision-making. Rooted in the findings from recent research studies exploring the lived experiences of paramedics across Canada throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our team has determined that the challenges faced by practitioners were not new, but rather an exacerbation of historical issues. Associated stressors and grief experienced by practitioners were predominately a result of misguided decision-making rooted in poor communication and an audit culture that did not allow practitioners to act in a manner that aligned with their personal beliefs or values. These findings present an opportunity to begin healing a broken system and move forward, not only as individual practitioners but in solidarity as a profession.
This presentation will introduce ethical decision-making principles and encourage
attendees to reflect on their corresponding personal values.
Our presenters bring a wealth of knowledge from across the country and look forward to the opportunity to engage other practitioners in thought-provoking discussions that will begin to shape an ethical decision-making framework specifically designed for and aligned to our profession.
