February 1, 2009 was the official launch date for the Regional Paramedic Program for Eastern Ontario. Merging the Ottawa and Kingston Base Hospitals, the plan was to create greater consistency in paramedic continuing education, a regional approach to medical direction and standardized quality management.
Ten years later, we've grown into an industry-leader in paramedicine quality and continuing education.
We are very happy to present the RPPEO Annual Dissemination Activities Report: Research, Education & Quality for 2017-2018!
This report provides an overview of program’s innovation successes over the year by highlighting the education, quality and research department’s initiatives and dissemination activities. RPPEO Paramedics, educators, research personnel, quality coordinators and personnel and Medical Directors are all included in this report; our teamwork and collaboration is integral to the continued success of our projects and our program.
Please join me in congratulating Kerry Morris and Gregor Moffat for receiving the prestigious EMS Medal for Exemplary Service. We are extremely proud of Greg and Kerry for dedicating their lives to helping others, and for the great work they do in developing other paramedics to do the same thing. Personally, I am really thankful they have chosen to work with the RPPEO here at TOH.
-Penny Price, Program Director for RPPEO
