Emergency preparedness director discusses the power of simulation training

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- David Lindstrom, director of emergency preparedness in the College of Medicine at Penn State is co-investigator of the Remote Expert Direction and Simulation Training in Airway Management with Paramedics (RED STAMP) project.

Lindstrom and Dr. Thomas Terndrup, principal investigator, have been directing the RED STAMP research team in analyzing paramedic training procedures to help health care organizations improve their emergency response techniques. A staff member of 37 years at Penn State, Lindstrom first began working at the University after setting national standards for paramedics as a member of a committee of the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council. He later served as Penn State’s chief privacy officer, before moving into his current role in 2009.

Current recently sat down with David to talk about RED STAMP’s achievements and how IT is helping to make emergency training possible.
