JCREC Publishes Discussion Paper on Community Paramedicine

Jan 20, 2011

NASEMSO and NOSORH jointly support the effort to improve the understanding of community paramedicine.
The National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO) and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) through their Joint Committee on Rural Emergency Care (JCREC) has developed a discussion paper on Community Paramedicine. NASEMSO and NOSORH jointly support the effort to improve the understanding of community paramedicine. In 2011, the JCREC will continue to learn about CP and is contemplating several strategies, including monthly CP forums or education sessions for states and programs developing or contemplating CP; development of a more comprehensive state guide to developing a CP program; and a symposium to discuss issues and solutions to the points brought up in the discussion paper. The final version of the discussion paper which has been approved for distribution by NASEMSO and NOSORH is now available here.
