I just got back from the first on site week of Ambulance Service Manager, the leadership class put on by Fitch and Associates. It’s pretty good. Lots of focus on emotional intelligence and just culture. Which is really what most of our systems are lacking.
over the years I’ve answered this question a few times. My daily carry has once again changed.

There is a difference between doing effective simulation with proper cues and a debriefing session versus just throwing a manikin on a table.
I'd be interested in seeing some research on this. The last study I saw (I'm looking for the citation) showed that increasing stress levels in training scenarios directly impacted real world performance. That's why realistic simulation is so valuable in building competency.
Agreed. An astute instructor knows how to add stress to skill scenarios. I add in stressors until the students are able to function while dealing with hysterical bystanders, loud noises and a sick patient all at once.
We use ePro and while it’s feature rich, implementation of those features is a pain. I understand that ESO will be retooling lots of it. We use almost all the modules. Incident reporting, equipment tracking, vehicles, and all the rest. The con ed module is awful. I’d love to move to ninthbrain.
I always hear students say stuff like this, "I can do the skills, I just can't do it in front of other people"
My reply? You better learn how.
I'll work with you and put you in lower stress scenarios to start as you build confidence, but you do need to learn how to perform in front of others...
