In 1996, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) published the consensus document titled EMS Agenda for the Future. The intent of the Agenda was to create a common vision for the future of EMS and was designed for use by government and private organizations at the national, state and local levels to help guide planning, decision making, and policy regarding EMS. In 2000, this document was followed by the EMS Education Agenda for the Future: A Systems Approach. The purpose of the Education Agenda is to establish a system of EMS education that more closely parallels that of other health care professions. The Core Content, Scope of Practice, and Education Standards have been completed.
In 2007, NASEMSO President Fergus Laughridge appointed an Implementation Working Group with representation from state EMS directors, state EMS medical directors, and state EMS training coordinators with the goal of assisting states with activities to implement the National EMS Education Agenda.
