The Premier Critical Care Transport Course
a course developed by
CCEMTPSM was designed
in response to the growing need for qualified specialists in the
area of critical care inter-facility transfer. It helps to
prepare paramedics and nurses to serve with competence and confidence
in meeting the needs of critical care patients undergoing inter-facility
transports. While traditional paramedic education programs
teach essential skills and provide a knowledge base for the management
of patients in the pre-hospital setting, these training programs
frequently do not teach the skills and knowledge necessary to manage
critical patients between hospitals, specialty referral centers,
and extended care facilities. The CCEMTPSM program will assist the clinician in
developing the necessary skills and knowledge to manage critical patients
during a high risk transfer. Essentially, CCEMTPSM is "post graduate education" for
the paramedic or nurse that attempts to standardize training and
level of care in inter-facility transport.
The CCEMTPSMProgram has
been completely redesigned to meet the current needs of the critical
care transport provider working in ground, air or fixed wing environments.
The new curriculum focuses on advanced level knowledge and assumes
that participants come in with a working knowledge of Chemistry,
Pharmacodynamics, along with Anatomy & Physiology. The
curriculum is truly one that creates a Specialty Care Transport Provider
and has been not only 100% peer reviewed by leaders in the industry,
but also 100% physician reviewed.
The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Programsm brings paramedics and nurses together in an effort to bridge the gap between prehospital and hospital care. The result is a specialized care provider that has an understanding of both aspects of patient care, and uses the understanding to provide the highest level of care to critical patients during transport.
