The Association has been working hard with Alberta Health Services to identify new opportunities for Paramedics and Emergency Medical Responders to work within health care facilities as part of the COVID-19 pandemic response.
This is a great opportunity for the growth and evolution of our profession. Working in health care facilities as a practitioner under the Health Professions Act, you will be showcasing the skills and knowledge of Paramedics outside of the EMS system.
There are still many logistics to be worked through, but while we continue to collaborate with AHS on this initiative, we will keep those on the Paramedic Response list updated.
