Cooperation in the Wilderness Medicine Industry
Aerie was very happy to cooperate with other wilderness medicine training providers to put together a Scope of Practice (SoP)suggested guideline for Wilderness First Aid training. Dr. David Johnson of WMA and Tod Schimelpfenig of WMI took a leadership role and put a tremendous amount of effort into crafting and then seeking our feedback on this document. A copy will be placed on this Blog for others to look at and comment upon. This SoP will be discussed at some length next week at the AORE conference in Minneapolis, MN. From there, Tod and David will submit the document to the Wilderness Medical Society for further review. The goal will be in part to provide more consistency and transparency within the industry. Next on the curriculum list is the Wilderness First Responder program.
