"According to the Institute of Medicine, within the United States an estimated 44,000 to 98,000 deaths occur each year because of preventable medical errors resulting in $29 billion in additional health care burdens. These errors can be traced to humanfactors despite the best intentions of medical personnel. The types of errors cover a broad range from medication errors, incorrect procedures, equipment misuse, to poor record keeping. They include all personnel involved in patient care. Within themilitary, medical personnel at all echelons lack formal protocol training for assessing patients and reporting patient conditions to physicians that would allow the latter to make the best possible patient diagnosis and direct the medical personnel toprovide the best possible initial treatment until the patient can be transported to a medical facility. Some civilian medical communities are working to overcome this problem but no national standardization of medical treatment protocols for firstresponder personnel exists at this time. The focus of this program is to develop standardized first responder protocols for military and civilian use and to develop an Advanced Distributive Learning (ADL) web-based training course accessible world widevia PC and palmtop computer to train them. Patients will benefit most from this effort because of standardized protocols which lead to better and more effective communications between first responders,
