Episode 13 - The Female EMS Experience
May 16, 2024 Season 5 Episode 13
Michigan Association of Ambulance Services

In this episode, join Laurie Thiel as she talks to Molly McCann-Pineo, the author of a new whitepaper titled "The Female Emergency Medical Services Experience". 

"Women, compared to men, are at increased risk for adverse mental health outcomes across their lifespan, including anxiety, depression and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These outcomes may become further exacerbated among those whose occupations require them to be frequently or consistently exposed to stressful and potentially traumatic events, such as healthcare workers and first responders.

Emergency Medical Services is specifically challenging, with often challenging working conditions, labor shortages, and low wages. Women may also experience unique workplace stressors in comparison to their male counterparts, such as gender-based discrimination and bias, pregnancy, child and familial demands, and even trauma, all of which significantly contribute to their occupational and personal well-being.
