Implementation of an EBG

Statewide Implementation of an Evidence-Based Guideline

Purpose of the Project

This three-year project was funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Office of EMS (NHTSA OEMS) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program, and was awarded to NASEMSO through a competitive application process. The objective of this grant is to support the use and further refinement of the National Evidence-Based Guideline (EBG) Model Process, developed under the auspices of the Federal Interagency Committee on EMS (FICEMS) and the National EMS Advisory Council (NEMSAC). Using a Pain Management Guideline (with special attention paid to pediatric patients), this project will focus on the last three steps of the EBG Model Process: Dissemination, Implementation and Evaluation. Five states participated in this project: Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Tennessee, and Wyoming. The project ended in December 2016.
