Star Points Symposium
The six points on the EMS “Star of Life” represent a different aspect of the EMS System. These include:
- On-Scene Care
- Transfer to Definitive Care
The staff on the star represents Medicine and Healing.
The staff of Carilion Clinic Patient Transportation is dedicated to providing the community with professional care in all aspects of the EMS System. StarPoints is a reflection of our dedication to the community. We hope that EMS and hospital providers will take advantage of this educational opportunity as we strive to follow the StarPoints and take education to new altitudes.
