Geriatric Education for Emergency Medical Services (GEMS) 1-Day Course

GEMS provides EMS practitioners at all levels the skills and knowledge to handle the unique medical, social, environmental and communications challenges of older adults. Developed by NAEMT, in partnership with the American Geriatrics Society, GEMS empowers EMS practitioners to help improve medical outcomes and quality of life for geriatric patients.

GEMS is offered as a basic Core course and an Advanced course. Both courses are appropriate for EMTs, paramedics, emergency medical responders, nurses, physician assistants and physicians. The 8-hour courses enhance the competence, confidence and compassion of EMS practitioners in responding to geriatric patients.
