The Association has been engaged in an extensive professional fatigue impact study with a focus on both the psychological and associated health effects that a Core-Flex staffing model has on Alberta’s paramedics.
The Core-Flex model schedules EMS practitioners to provide emergency health services for an extended period of time which is typically 96 hours or more in duration. Within Alberta, there are approximately 190 ambulances, providing front line emergency response, utilizing this staffing model.
We are asking you to support our cause and donate to help The Association find different alternatives to this current staffing model. With your support, you can help make a difference in your local Paramedic’s life and their families.
