Model EMS Guidelines Draft Posted for Public Review


The draft Model EMS Clinical Guidelines are now posted at Model EMS Guidelines Project. Comments from the EMS community are being requested and must be submitted by April 30.

The initial two-year effort is led by the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO) Medical Directors Council and comprised of a team of physicians from several other national EMS and medical associations. While not yet a comprehensive set of EMS protocols, the Model Guidelines are intended to be a resource for EMS medical directors and EMS systems of care. They incorporate the latest evidence-based guidelines and will be updated over time.

Those in the EMS community as well as physician specialty organizations are invited to provide their feedback. Comments should be submitted to Mary Hedges, NASEMSO Program Manager, at no later than April 30, 2014. The team will meet to review all comments the first week of May.
