Since the early 1970s, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has been a champion for EMS education and better patient care. Today, the AAOS is expanding this mission by setting the standard for EMS providers transitioning into the emerging field of community paramedicine.
Community paramedicine expands the role of EMS professionals to help fill a critical gap in the health care system—responding to the medical needs of underserved communities and ultimately improving the quality of life and health for these populations. From managing chronic disease to preventive care to coordinating health services, the community paramedic collaborates with a dedicated team of health care professionals to address health problems within their communities, reduce hospital readmissions, prevent unnecessary ambulance transports, and keep patients where they want to be: in their homes.
Based on nationally recognized and field-tested curricula from across the country, Community Health Paramedicine offers clarity and precision in a concise format that ensures comprehension and encourages critical thinking. This innovative training solution prepares experienced paramedics to expand their role within their existing scope of practice, including:
Assisting the primary care physician in providing preventive patient care
Establishing a successful therapeutic relationship with the patient
Navigating the patient to appropriate social services
Coaching the patient to achieve self-management goals
Current, State-of-the-Art Medical Content
