December 18, 2018

EMS Focus webinar hosted by NHTSA’s Office of EMS on December 18 at 2pm EST

First developed more than a decade ago, the National EMS Scope of Practice Model defined the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve competence for each of the four levels of EMS clinician: EMR, EMT, AEMT and paramedic. The 2018 revision marks the first significant update in more than a decade and is sure to have an impact on the education, credentialing and licensure of EMS clinicians for many years.

In this webinar, you’ll learn why revising the Model was so critical and how changes within the profession and medical science over the last decade influenced its content. The panel will also provide insight into many of the decisions they made when writing the Model, which will soon be available on EMS.gov. You’ll also be among the first to hear about the effort to revise the National EMS Education Standards – including ways you can provide input.

In addition, the panelists will share:

  • A quick history of the original Scope of Practice Model and why it matters
  • The process for updating the document and gathering input from the EMS community
  • How the new National EMS Scope of Practice Model will influence EMS practice across the country now and in the future
