Screening and Brief Intervention Toolkit for the Hispanic Patient (NHMA) (Report)

Screening and Brief Intervention Toolkit for the Hispanic Patient (NHMA) (Report)


Product ID: 810 953
IMPLICATIONS FOR HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY:  Screening and brief intervention have been shown to be effective strategies for reducing impaired driving as well as alcohol misuse.  The Hispanic population, particularly Hispanic males, are at a greater risk for involvement in alcohol-related crashes and fatalities.  The Hispanic Toolkit has been developed for use in emergency rooms, trauma centers and other healthcare settings.  The primary audience for the materials is nurses, doctors, counselors, and other healthcare professionals who have an opportunity to conduct SBI with Spanish-speaking patients.  NHTSA regional offices and State Highway Safety Offices can disseminate these toolkits and promote their use in Hispanic communities to hospitals, trauma centers, doctors, and other healthcare professionals.

Product ID: 810 977
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: This is the fourth report volume from NHTSA's large-sample national telephone survey, conducted in 2007, addressing occupant protection issues.  Volume 4 presents the survey results pertaining to crash injury experience, use of the EMS system, and cell phone use while driving. IMPLICATIONS FOR HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY: The report provides data to consider when making strategic decisions about allocating health care resources.  It shows the percentage of adults injured in a crash, and the demand they placed on EMS and other health care systems for immediate and follow-up treatment.  This includes data showing hospitalization less often needed when a seat belt was worn.  The report also shows the extent of public use of the 9-1-1 emergency call system.  Other data describe the level of confidence in the EMS system, and how this varies across groups.  In addition, data on cell phone use describe the magnitude of this driver distraction behavior.

Characterizing Local EMS Systems

Characterizing Local EMS Systems


Product ID: 811 824

Emergency medical services (EMS) systems are configured differently depending on several factors, including the size, demographics, geography, and politics of the local communities they serve. Although some information exists about the organization, financing, and delivery of EMS in the Nation’s 200 largest cities, there is less information available about how services are organized outside large urban areas, in which 75 percent of the nation’s population resides. There is little evidence to support alternative system designs and configurations in terms of their impact on the effectiveness and efficiency of service delivery. To this end, there is a need to document the variation in system configurations so they may be evaluated on a common basis.

Identification and Referral of Impaired Drivers through Emergency Department Protocols (Report)

Identification and Referral of Impaired Drivers through Emergency Department Protocols (Report)


Product ID: 809 412
This report discusses the investigation conducted to determine whether an emergency department (ED) intervention protocol could identify and refer patients with alcohol abuse or alcohol dependency (AA/AD) and result in more patients receiving treatment and evaluation for substance abuse.  Of patients treated in emergency departments following motor vehicle crashes , 15-20 % are at high risk for AA/AD, and are likely to drive after drinking.  In order to intervene with patients at high risk in the ED, a reliable and quick screening procedure and a method of intervening must be available.  An ED protocol for screening and intervention for patients at high risk of AA/AD increases the likelihood of receiving definitive treatment for AA/AD.  Three color, 8.5" x 11", 26 pages.

Model State 9-1-1 Plan

Model State 9-1-1 Plan


Product ID: 811 369

The 911 system was originally built as a series of independent, local operations. This worked well for the first 40 years of its operation, as almost none of the 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) were connected. As 911 evolves into an nationally interconnected web of local and state 911 systems, consistency and uniformity in operation and technology are an important issue for state and local 911 systems to address.

National EMS Advisory Council Annual Report

National EMS Advisory Council Annual Report


Product ID: 811 705

The National EMS Advisory Council presents this Summary Report with the hope that it promotes clear priorities, a strong vision for the future, and thoughtful and effective leadership on vital issues facing emergency medical services throughout the United States.

Some time ago, the Council members went through a systematic process to identify the topics we con sidered most important to pursue. We began with a list of more than 80 possibilities, from which emerged a short list of top priorities. The issues highlighted in this report represent fundamental concerns—some of the most challenging and important issues of our time. They have the potential to strengthen the care we provide to patients now and in the future, and significantly enhance the sustainability of EMS while enabling us
to offer even greater value to society.

Recommendations for the Safe Transportation of Children in Ground Ambulances

Recommendations for the Safe Transportation of Children in Ground Ambulances


Product ID: 811 677

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation initiated a project in September 2008 titled “Solutions to Safely Transport Children in Emergency Vehicles.” The major objectives of this project were to:

1. Build consensus in the development of a uniform set of recommendations to safely and appropriately transport children (injured, ill, or uninjured) from the scene of a crash or other incident in an ambulance;

2. To foster the creation of best practice recommendations after reviewing the practices currently being used to transport children in ambulances; and

3. To provide consistent national recommendations that will be embraced by local, State and national emergency medical services organizations, enabling them to reduce the frequency of emergency transport of ill, injured or uninjured children who may be transported in an unsafe or inappropriate manner.

To achieve these major objectives, a working group was formed; the working group was comprised of members with experience, background, and extensive knowledge in the current practices of the emergency transportation of children in ground ambulances. The expert members of the working group were drawn from those organizations and entities involved in the health care of children and the emergency transportation of children and others in ground ambulances. It should be noted that throughout the remainder of this document, references to ambulances are limited to ground ambulances, unless otherwise stated. Also, based upon the deliberations of the working group, it was decided to use the terms “child” or “children” versus “youth” to the extent practical throughout the remainder of this document, to represent all children, starting at birth.
