Description

The Community Paramedicine program is designed to educate practicing paramedics who are primarily employed in the pre-hospital emergency environment to become competent community paramedics. Community paramedics work collaboratively with public health, home care and primary care professionals in non-emergency settings, filling gaps in the healthcare workforce.

Community paramedics help patients meet critical health needs by assisting in establishing health systems that promote health and wellness, while serving as advocates, educators, facilitators, liaisons, and resource coordinators. The program is designed to allow paramedics to perform needs assessments and assist in the development of community paramedicine initiatives that meet very specific and individualized community needs.
