University of Rochester Launches iTraining for Emergency Responders
Date:2/12/2009

in the Rochester region, it is imperative that EMS providers deliver quality care to this segment of the population."

In fact, 40 percent of emergency calls are for geriatric patients, although emergency responders only receive one or two hours of mandatory training geared toward the older adult, Shah said.

The Finger Lakes Geriatrics Education Center was a partner in the program. Lars-Kristofer Peterson, a third-year medical student, was executive producer of the video podcasts. The federal Health Resources and Services Administration funded the project, through a grant to principal investigator Paul R. Katz, M.D., chief of the Division of Geriatrics and Aging at URMC.

One of the nation's top academic medical centers, the University of Rochester Medical Center (http://www.urmc.rochester.edu) forms the centerpiece of the University's health research, teaching, patient care, and community outreach missions. The Medical Center receives more than $230 million in external research funding per year, and the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry ranks in the top one-quarter of U.S. medical centers in federal research funding. The University's health care delivery network is anchored by Strong Memorial Hospital - a 739-bed, University-owned teaching hospital. As upstate New York's premier health care delivery network, patients benefit from the Medical Center's robust teaching and biomedical research programs.
