Day 1

The Provider’s Guide to Public Safety Medicine: Understanding and using the available guidelines and standards

Saturday 08/12/2017
8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This full day session offers state of the art training in applying the currently used guidelines and standards (most notably ACOEM’s Guidance for the Medical Evaluation of Law Enforcement Officers and NFPA 1582) when conducting post-offer, return to work, disability or annual examinations of Law Enforcement Officers and Fire Fighters.  The focus will be clinical.  However, the course is open to public safety administrators, risk managers, and others who want a better understanding of the basis for medical judgment by their health care partners.  

Our faculty is drawn from the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine’s (ACOEM) Public Safety Medicine Section.  In addition to authoring the ACOEM Guidance for the Medical Evaluation of Law Enforcement Officers, many members of this group also are members of the technical committee that writes NFPA 1582, the standard for the medical evaluation of Fire Fighters.

Topics include:
• Introduction 
• Essential Job Functions
• Post-offer and Periodic medical evaluations 
• Cardiovascular
• Endocrinology (Diabetes)
• Medications
• Neurology (Seizures) 
• Musculoskeletal 
• Mental Health Disorders
• Cancer
• Vision/Hearing
• Pregnancy
• Infectious Disease
• Asthma
• Application of guidance to other safety sensitive positions: Tactical/SWAT, Bomb Squad, EMS, Correctional Officers, etc.

There will also be an interactive session in which participants can try on police and fire gear.
