Emergency Medicine Patient Safety Education Center (EMPSEC) is a project of the University of Florida College of Medicine Jacksonville, Department of Emergency Medicine Research Division. The goal of the website is to offer patient safety and risk reduction educational programs and resources for healthcare providers and students at no cost. The site has a multidisciplinary and emergency care focus but materials may be applicable for other specialties. Funding is provided by the Florida Medical Malpractice Joint Underwriting Association.
Currently, two educational programs are available: Pain Assessment and Management Initiative (PAMI) and Pediatric Emergency Care Safety Initiative (PECSI). Each site contains resources and E-learning modules for continuing education credits at no cost. Additional patient safety materials and programs related to emergency care will be added on an ongoing basis.
