Summary:

Today’s healthcare workforce is a lively mix of generations. Today’s workforce is retiring later, and we now have five distinct generations working together: veterans, baby boomers, and Generations (Gen) X, Y, and Z. People born around the same time develop attitudes and personalities shaped by a common history of cultural events, images, and experiences. Generations experience the same national catastrophes and achievements, grow up with the same music and cultural memorabilia, and start school and work at about the same time.  Generational commonalities cut across racial and ethnic lines. Spanning 15 to 20 years, each generation has its own way of viewing the world. When dealing with various patient populations, it can make the difference between miscommunication and success. 

Objectives:

The purpose of this continuing education program is to discuss insights that EMS providers, educators, and managers can use to work more effectively with various generations. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe similarities and differences among the five generations of clinicians
  • Identify strategies that can help you collaborate with generations different from your own
  • Promote teamwork and partnerships among diverse patients, families, and staff members
