Interview With A EMT Patrick Cavanaugh, a certified Paramedic for the Valley Ambulance Authority in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, began his emergency medical career as an EMT, Emergency Medical Technician. "The differences between an EMT and paramedic are that an EMT can do the splinting of fractures, basic health care, administer CPR, and apply other basic medical procedures," Cavanaugh said. "A paramedic can do more invasive treatment such as starting intravenous fluids, administer drugs, apply heart monitors, and other medical devices. A paramedic functions as the eyes and ears of the doctor in the field."

Extractions: North Florida AHEC Program Studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine and in the journal Inquiry have found the physicians most likely to care for the medically underserved are women and minorities. And yet, minority students are underrepresented in many health professions programs. AHEC is doing its part to make sure every young person has a fair shot at a health career by providing minority, rural and other disadvantaged students with health-related experiences, academic enrichment programs, summer camps and other activities designed to expose them to health career opportunities , build their self-esteem and prepare them for college. AHEC has partnered with the Boy Scouts of America to establish a Medical Explorers Post for minority and disadvantaged students in the Jacksonville area. For two years, AHEC has coordinated recruitment to the post of high school students with an interest in health careers. As post advisor, AHEC also provides adult volunteer leaders, program resources, activities coordination and meeting facilities. The program is designed to counteract the effects of poverty, stress and peer pressure by encouraging students from inner-city and underserved communities to identify career goals to which they can aspire and by offering them activities to help them succeed. In time, the program is expected to have a positive impact on the number of underrepresented minority students in college-level health professions programs.

Extractions: By Jesumoney Samuel OCCUPATIONAL health nursing has been in Malaysia for over 50 years. In fact, it can be traced way back to the British Occupation in Malaysia. The majority of occupational health nurses (OHN) are found working in various settings ranging from medium to large industries. They can be found in settings such as manufacturing, petroleum, construction and mining industries, university-based occupational health clinics, workers compensation insurance companies, corporate occupational health and safety departments, hospital employee health units and environmental/occupational health consulting groups. Occupational health nursing has yet to be recognised as a specialty practice. With limited training programmes available, and with no expectations from employers and government bodies, nurses have remained dormant in their profession and their contributions to the workplace setting have been restricted. However, in some industries, nurses do play a major role in the occupational health service and their contributions have depended very much on their own initiative and experience.

Occupational Therapist I: This is the entry level class in the Occupational Therapist series. This class is distinguished from the journey level by the performance of the more routine tasks and duties assigned to positions within this series. Employees at this level are not expected to perform with the same independence of direction and judgement on matters allocated to the journey level. Since this class is typically used as a training class, employees may have only limited or no directly related work experience. Employees work under general supervision while learning job tasks. Occupational Therapist II: This is the full journey level class within the Occupational Therapist series. This class is distinguished from the Occupational Therapist I by the assignment of the full range of duties. Employees at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies within the work unit. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the entry level.
Extractions: COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY Health Sciences Campus Guidelines for Volunteers, Trainees and Observers Introduction: The research and educational programs at Health Sciences benefit from the presence of many individuals who are not faculty or staff or registered students at Columbia University , but who come to the academic health center to train, to learn, to teach. These are individuals who are not compensated by the University. The presence of these volunteers, trainees and observers promotes the mission of the institution. We have an obligation to ensure that their activities are conducted in a safe, professional and responsible manner. Volunteers can be students from other institutions, including high schools, who are learning research techniques or working on their own projects, such as Intel Science Talent scholars, in University laboratories. They may participate in laboratory activities as part of an educational/mentoring program sponsored by their school or other educational organization in conjunction with the University. Volunteers donate any services they may provide to the institution, and may not perform work that is regularly performed by employees. The United States Department of Labor has ruled that an employer-employee relationship does not exist when volunteers do not expect compensation for their services and are working toward humanitarian objectives. Trainees are persons who are learning new techniques from researchers or physicians at the University, and who may perform work as part of the training they are receiving.
