Sexual Assault & Intimate Partner Violence with Dr. Stephanie Gaines and Jennifer Moreland

About Prehospital Paradigm

Prehospital Paradigm is dedicated to education of all providers in the prehospital care of patients. This endeavor was started by John Hill, MD, Scott Wildenheim, Paramedic, Caleb Ferroni, Paramedic, and Ray Pace, Paramedic, with the release of the first podcast in February 2023. The Prehospital Paradigm Podcast was the original focus of this group.

In May 2023 we expanded the Prehospital Paradigm to include all the various publications and trainings provided under the UH EMS umbrella, and to begin to seek out collaborators for additional content for this site. This umbrella vision will include all FOAMed produced by UH EMS.

We work with The University Hospitals EMS Training & Disaster Preparedness Institute which is dedicated to all facets of emergency services and provides unparalleled emergency care throughout our community hospitals. They support Fire Departments, Special Rescue Teams and EMS Agencies across northern Ohio by providing initial and continuing education in all disciplines.

The UH EMS Training & Disaster Preparedness Institute provides area Firefighters, EMS and Hospital Workers with access to the finest initial training and continuing education through cutting edge classroom courses, physician lectures, and instructor prepared online education solutions.
