To Backboard or Not to Backboard - Spinal Clearance Protocols
2008 NAEMSP Annual Meeting

Point Hilton Squaw Peak
Phoenix, Arizona

With evidence based medicine becoming a new standard in EMS, how do we change our protocols on things such as spinal immobilization that have been the standard of care without being proven as the best patient practice.

1) Review research on spine injuries and evaluation standards.
2) Discuss standard of care and protocols regarding spine injuries.
3) How to implement focused spinal assessment protocols in your system.
