Practice makes perfect, especially when it comes to emergency services.
Over 100 people took part in a medical joint task force at Indiana State University.
The program brings together students, athletic trainers, paramedics, and police and fire departments.
They work together to figure out the best emergency-service plan for injured student athletes, and practice problem-solving that can happen in the transition from the field to the hospital.
"The best way to reduce medical errors is through inter-professional healthcare. We know that we can improve care that way and so I think it's programs like these and bringing people together like this that can really affect patient care," said Dr. Lindsey Eberman, Program Director for Undergraduate Athletic Training Education.
Students from ISU and Rose Hulman, as well as trainers from all Vigo County schools took part in this year's program.
