What is EMPACT?

Emergency Medical Patients: Assessment, Care and Transport (EMPACT) is a sixteen hour training program that emphasizes group discussion, case studies, and Socratic method to help new and veteran practitioners alike better understand and refine the differential of the medical patient. Realistic imagery and facilitated learning form the basis for a supportive, low-stress environment to explore the depth of a medical complaint to the extent not previously seen in other medical assessment programs.

The course content is supported by Brady/Pearson Health Science's EMPACT textbook, written by the well-known EMS author team of Joseph Mistovich, Daniel Limmer, Alice “Twink" Dalton and Howard Werman, MD. This groundbreaking textbook explains in simple, yet effective ways of how pathophysiologic processes form the signs and symptoms of the disease.

EMPACT is accepted by the National Registry of EMTs as part of the refresher process for paramedic recertification. It is CAPCE approved for 16 hours of EMS continuing education credit.
