Air Evac Lifeteam Hosts AEL Access Challenge During Employee Appreciation Weekend
The Access Challenge is aimed at creating an environment that fosters team bonding while simultaneously assessing continuing education needs for AEL crews.
Each year, the Air Evac Lifeteam (AEL) Clinical Services team hosts the Access Challenge in conjunction with their employee appreciation weekend. The purpose of the Access Challenge is to create an environment that fosters team bonding while simultaneously assessing continuing education needs for AEL crews. Clinical initiatives and content covered by the Clinical Services team for the upcoming year are partly determined by the Access Challenge.
The 2023 Access Challenge was held at AEL headquarters in late September, with six regional teams competing. The first-place winners of the AEL Access Challenge will represent Air Evac Lifeteam at the Critical Care Transport Medicine Conference (CCTMC) in the spring, competing in the CCCTMC simulation challenge.
This year’s 2023 Access Challenge winners are:
- Christina Philpott, flight nurse, AEL145 – Mattoon, IL
