Jeremy Blanchard, MD asks the question: “Are we really providing Patient Based Care?”
In one of the better sessions in a long time, Dr. Jeremy Blanchard demonstrates what it really looks like, sounds like and feels like to provide patient based care.
What is it?
According to Oneview: The IOM (Institute of Medicine) defines patient–centered care as: “Providing care that is respectful of, and responsive to, individual patient preferences, needs and values, and ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions
What is interrupting you?
Research has shown that if you answer a phone notification it will take you about 67 seconds to fully re-engage.
Dr. Blanchard asked us turn our phones to silent and put them away so that we were fully present in the conversation.
What can I do to start now?
At the beginning of this podcast Dr. Blanchard asks us to take a deep breath, hold it and slowly release.
He explains this allows you to step away from what was happening before and step into the current situation “fresh”
This helps clear your mind and prepare you to listen.
Dr. Blanchard stated doctors generally gives you less than 15 seconds to state your reason for visiting before.

“While exertional heat illnesses (EHI) are not always a life-threatening condition, exertional heat stroke (EHS) can lead to fatality if not recognized and treated properly. As the word heat implies, these conditions most commonly occur during the hot summer months; however, EHS can happen at any time and in the absence of high environmental temperatures.”

Appropriate care of the Spine Injured Athlete:
Have an EAP with local EMS
Use the “Medical Timeout”
Proper assessment and management of the injury
Remove equipment prior to transport
Equipment removal should be performed by at least 3 experienced rescuers
Know the different equipment for the different sports…and how to remove it
Apply rigid CERVICAL stabilization device prior to transport
Spine injured Athlete should be transported using a rigid immobilization device
NASEMSO does NOT support the use of rigid backboards for transport…only extraction.
Certain situations warrant one but not many spine injuries require transport using a rigid immobilization device
Use techniques to minimize spinal motion
Develop a plan prior to the start of the any events
Patient transport directly to a facility that can handle the spinal trauma.
Collaborate with medical staff, coaches and athletes in prevention of spine injuries
Medical team needs a strong working knowledge of current research
Future research continue to investigate the efficacy of these devices
