  • A National Assessment of the Health and Safety of Emergency Medical Services Professionals. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Nov 28; :1-9
  • Bentley MA, Levine R
  • CONCLUSIONS: The overall health and physical fitness of EMS professionals as well as their health problems, risk behaviors, ambulance safety, and patient-initiated violence in the prehospital emergency setting are areas of concern for the nation's emergency medical system. The prevalence of these problems and overall health and physical fitness has shown little or no improvement from 1999 to 2008. Bentley MA , Levine R . A national assessment of the health and safety of Emergency Medical Services professionals. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2016;31(Suppl. 1):s1-s9.
  • Longitudinal Emergency Medical Technician Attributes and Demographic Study (LEADS) Design and Methodology. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Nov 28; :1-11
  • Levine R
  • CONCLUSIONS: The LEADS study is the only national, randomized, and longitudinal data source for studying EMS professionals in the United States. Although not without flaws, this study remains an excellent source of information about EMS provider demographics, attributes, attitudes, workplace issues and concerns, and how the profession has changed from 1999 to 2008. Levine R . Longitudinal Emergency Medical Technician Attributes and Demographic Study (LEADS) design and methodology. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2016;31(Suppl. 1):s1-s11.
  • A Longitudinal Description of Emergency Medical Services Professionals by Race/Ethnicity. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Nov 28; :1-40
  • Crowe RP, Levine R, … Bentley MA
  • CONCLUSIONS: The ethnic/racial diversity of the population of nationally certified EMS professionals is not representative of the population served and has not improved over the 2000-2008 period. Similar to other health care professions, Hispanics and African-Americans are under-represented in EMS compared with the US population. This study serves as a baseline to examine under-represented populations in EMS. Crowe RP , Levine R , Eggerichs JJ , Bentley MA . A longitudinal description of Emergency Medical Services professionals by race/ethnicity. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2016;31(Suppl. 1):s1-s40.
  • Compensation of Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)-Basics and Paramedics. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Nov 28; :1-9
  • Studnek JR
  • CONCLUSIONS: There are a number of factors associated with compensation disparities within the EMS profession. These include type of service (ie, fire-based vs. other types of agencies) and gender. The reasons for these disparities warrant further investigation. Studnek JR . Compensation of Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)-Basics and Paramedics. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2016;31(Suppl. 1):s1-s9.
  • Public Perception of Emergency Medical Services in the United States. [Journal Article]
  • PDPrehosp Disaster Med 2016 Nov 25; :1-6
  • Crowe RP, Levine R, … Pirrallo RG
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most respondents who had used EMS services rated their experience as excellent. Nevertheless, expectations related to survival after cardiac arrest in the out-of-hospital setting were not realistic. Furthermore, much of the public was unaware of the differences in training hour requirements and level of care provided by EMT-Basics and EMT-Paramedics. Crowe RP , Levine R , Rodriguez S , Larrimore AD , Pirrallo RG . Public perception of Emergency Medical Services in the United States. Prehosp Disaster Med. 2016;31(Suppl. 1):s1-s6.
