This week we discuss the findings from the International Roundtable for Community Paramedics where they recommend that we are all called the following terms:
Emergency Medical Responder
Primary Care Paramedic (PCP)
Intermediate Care Paramedic (ICP)
[Intermediate Care Paramedic 99 for the US only]
Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP)
Critical Care Paramedic (CCP)
and, any of those that has specific training in prevention, primary care visits, patient education and disease management can add Community Paramedic to their title.
We also discuss the Australian College of Ambulance Professionals Conference held in Auckland, NZ.
