Call for Presentations

The Kentucky Ambulance Provider's Association Conference Education Committee is now accepting abstracts for consideration for the 28th annual 2018 Kentucky EMS Conference and Expo, scheduled for September 18-21, 2018, in Lexington, KY.

We are looking for timely, thought-provoking and educationally sound topics that are relevant to EMTs, paramedics, critical care providers, emergency nurses, EMS medical directors, EMS educators, administrators and managers. The following educational tracks are offered at the Kentucky EMS Conference and Expo: BLS, ALS, Critical Care, Educator, Operations, Administrative/Management, and General.

**Please Note: All proposals must be provided electronically in either Microsoft Word or PDF format by January 31, 2018.**

Proposal Considerations

Members of the Education Committee evaluate all proposed programs based on the following criteria: overall quality, relevance to the EMS community, well-defined focus within the program track structure, practical applications of material, timeliness of the topic and speaker qualifications.

When submitting your proposal(s) consider the following guidelines:

Top consideration is given to new, high-quality and/or timely topics not previously presented at the Kentucky EMS Conference and Expo. Strong consideration will be given to presentations that focus on solutions for both field providers and EMS management.

The title of each session should be descriptive and impactful so attendees know what the class is about.

Your course description should answer the following:

What will attendees gain from this session?
What are the learning objectives?
What will attendees take home to their agency?
We recommend that speakers submit several classes for consideration, as faculty members typically present 2-3 sessions.


Your proposal MUST include the following items in the following order:

Title of your prospective conference session.
A description of your prospective conference session. Please gear the description towards the attendee. Your descrition will be published, in whole or in part, in the conference program so that those attending can select which break-out session they will attend.
A short bio describing your education and experience in EMS that would be used in promotional materials.
The names and titles (as in salutation) of each speaker/instructor.
The curriculum vitae for the lead presenter.
A list of presentation objectives suitable for submission to various boards for CE credit.
A high-quality head shot of the lead presentor in JPEG format, suitable to publication in our conference program. The head shot should be submitted as a separate attachment (and not included in a Word or PDF document, since these typically are not high quality).
Any fees connected to your travel and presentation.
Any special equipment necessary for your presentation (a PowerPoint projector and lecturn will be provided).
Proposals are due January 31, 2018.

The selected submitters will receive an e-mail notification of participation in February, 2018. Please note that paper submissions will NOT be accepted.
