Fatigue in EMS: Presentations and Handouts

Consensus-Derived Research Questions Guiding Systematic Reviews

Members of the Expert Panel and research team reached consensus on seven research questions following a face-to-face meeting on Apr. 26-27, 2016. These questions are intended to guide systematic reviews of the literature/evidence. The Internet links below will take you to PROSPERO, an international database of prospectively registered systematic reviews. The database maintains key information about systematic reviews in a variety of disciplines/fields, including healthcare, public health, education, and other areas. The purpose of our registering research questions with PROSPERO is to help avoid duplication and reduce the likelihood of reporting bias. PROSPERO is supported by funding from the National Institute for Health Research and Centre for Reviews and Dissemination of the University of York. Key information about the searches will be updated/maintained throughout the project period. Click on the links below for detailed information about each research question.

  • Question#1: The diagnostic question.
  • Question #2: The intervention question regarding shift work and fatigue.
  • Question #3: The intervention question regarding fatigue countermeasures.
  • Question #4: The intervention question regarding sleep/rest strategies to mitigate fatigue.
  • Question #5: The intervention question regarding fatigue education and training.
  • Question #6: The intervention question that addresses use of statistical models to mitigate fatigue.
  • Question #7: The intervention question regarding task load/workload and fatigue.
