Description

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 healthcare 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

Community Health Paramedicine is based on nationally recognized and field-tested curricula and reflects the collective expertise of its top-flight authors and editors. This groundbreaking text offers evidence-based care protocols supported by the medical literature, thoroughly preparing students for certification and ensuring that new community paramedics are well-equipped for the field.

Application to the Field

Through patient case studies in each chapter, Community Health Paramedicine gives students real-world context to apply the knowledge gained in the chapter, clarifying how the information is used to care for patients in the field, and pushing students to engage in critical thinking and discussion.

Today, the AAOS suite of EMS educational resources, from first aid and CPR to critical care transport, is the gold standard in training programs by offering exceptional content and instructional resources that meet the diverse needs of today’s educators and students.
