Welcome to the FlightCrit Patreon page. My name is Sean, host of the TIPSfromCRIT podcast and creator of FlightCrit.
Years ago I recognized a problem within the EMS community. The quality of continuing education available to most clinicians was declining. EMS professionals looking to advance their practice were being forced to go looking for high quality educational resources on their own.
This usually lead to one of a couple places: either state or national EMS conferences or formal educational classes.
Both of these options are great, but they have some major downsides too.
They're Expensive and Inconvenient
- Entrance Fees
- Time Away From Work
- Time Away From Family
That's why I created FlightCrit and the TIPSfromCRIT podcast. To provide a resource for the EMS community that delivers high quality EMS continuing education that accommodates your busy life without further burdening you.
For the past several years I've been engaging with members of the EMS community just like you to help translate the world of prehospital emergency and critical care transport medicine into usable knowledge that you can immediately apply to your practice as a prehospital provider.
I run a very active community with over 3000 like minded individuals on Facebook which you can join by clicking here: FlightCrit: Flight and Critical Care Transport Education.
If you're already one of our community members, let me say THANK YOU for being so awesome! It is because of you that I continue to work hard to create the content you're asking for.
So how is FlightCrit, and the TIPSfromCRIT Podcast different, you ask? Well, that's a very good question.
This is the only community where you are in charge of the content I create. See, that's the problem with most EMS educators. They decide what education to provide to their staff instead of letting the staff choose what they want to learn more about.
Now it's true that sometimes educators are providing education based on identified problems, but when that's not necessary they should be letting the staff "drive the ship."
That's what I'm doing with the TIPSfromCRIT podcast. Have a problem or questions you want discussed? Just head over AskFlightCrit.com, a special web page I created just for you to ask your questions, and leave me a voicemail message. I'll use your voicemail message in a future episode of the podcast and send you an email letting you know when YOUR episode goes live.
I'll even send you a TIPSfromCRIT T-Shirt as my way of saying thank you for helping me serve our community.
So why did I create this Partreon page. Well, like most of you, I too work a full time job and have all the other obligations that come with this thing called LIFE...,not to mention I have received countless messages from members of the FlightCrit Community asking me for a way they can help support the content I'm creating.
And since I would rather not charge for this content, and I hate the idea of having ads on my websites, I decided this would be a good option for those in the community who wish to support the podcast.
With your support, I'll be able to devote more time and attention to producing more podcast episodes and creating more of the content you want to help you thrive.
And if now isn't a good time to donate, that's cool too. I'll still continue to answer your questions and producing content for you.
Thanks for all you do.
