WHAT WE DO

Educational Opportunities

A major focus of PAPEI is to provide high-quality educational opportunities to its membership. Our Education Sessions typically take the form of morbidity and mortality (M&M) events, conferences, certification programs such as Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) or Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), or multidisciplinary training. All of our education sessions provide Continuing Education Units (CEU) to meet requirements for licensing with Health PEI. By setting educational standards among Island paramedics high, we set the standard of care our patients receive higher.​

Events

PAPEI has hosted a number of successful events such as Breaking Barriers, the PAPEI Annual Symposium, various M&Ms and skills sessions. In addition to being educational, our events serve to provide networking opportunities and a time to share ideas - vital to the development and innovation of paramedicine across Canada.​

Public and Interagency Relations

Another role of PAPEI is to represent and advocate for PEI paramedics on a variety of fronts. The way we present ourselves creates an impression of paramedicine as a whole, but keeping in touch with our stakeholders so that we can align our goals and values with theirs is even more important. This imperative includes public relations and education initiatives, as well as interdisciplinary and inter-agency communications.

PAPEI also organizes several community outreach and education programs. In past years,  PAPEI has partnered with Wounded Warriors Canada to support their initiatives in helping ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans, First Responders and their families - as well as Mikinduri Children of Hope, a local charity committed to humanitarian efforts in Kenya. PAPEI is always interested in learning about more opportunities to give back to the communities in which we serve. If you or your organization would like to get involved, please contact us, and keep an eye out for future announcements about our exciting partnerships!

Regulation and Legislation

Ensuring paramedics have representation at these levels is important to advancing our profession and providing patients with the high-performance and quality emergency medical services they deserve. PAPEI continues to lobby the government on behalf of PEI paramedics at the federal, provincial, and municipal levels.​
