Introduction to the September 2015 JEMS supplement, Doing It Right: Scope of practice, training & tips for conducting effective mobile integrated healthcare programs.
JEMS and Laerdal are excited to bring you this special supplement. Each of the contributors to this supplement are recognized leaders in the EMS mobile integrated healthcare and community paramedicine (MIH-CP) field. They’ve all guided the implementation and ongoing success of this service delivery model and are therefore uniquely qualified as experts in the focus area.
This supplement highlights:
- Scope of services provided by EMS providers delivering the service model;
- Educational needs for both initial credentialing and continuing education of community paramedics and other specially trained providers;
- Benefits of integrating EMS-based MIH-CP services with home health and hospice agencies; and
- The most important things an agency must consider while developing and implementing an MIH-CP program.
