Nurses in the Trenches with First Responders

First responders such as police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians perform very different jobs, but their work interfaces with the work of licensed nurses in emergency departments, mental health facilities, correctional facilities, accident scenes, and many other settings.  The purpose of this conference is to increase the knowledge of licensed nurses about the roles and responsibilities of first responders in a variety of settings with the aim of facilitating communication, improving continuity of care, and enhancing safe effective care. 

Participants will learn about:

  • communicating with opposing sides after crime events,
  • trauma informed care and peer support after traumatic events in the line of duty,
  • autism and meeting the challenges,
  • types of abuse, neglect, and other forms of maltreatment and violence encountered in the field and care settings.    

Target Audience: This one-day virtual conference was designed for staff nurses, clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, staff development educators, managers, social workers, psychologists, counselors, law enforcement personnel, fire fighters, paramedics, and emergency medical services personnel.
