This presentation will take the audience on a journey spanning over 40 years, documenting the evolution of the Acute Care Transport Service (ACTS) team from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We will take a closer look at the systems and infrastructure required for inter-facility transport of high-risk neonatal patients within a regionalized context. The session will reflect on the essential competencies of a transport service and review the scope of practice, key curricular themes and the ACTS staffing model. Through the integration of case-based discussion this session will also explore how the advancements in data and technology can impact patient safety and enhance quality of care.
