NASEMSO is collecting information on new science and technologies that will lead to improvement of clinical outcomes in patients cared for by EMS personnel. The purpose of this assessment is to identify practice gaps between the 2007 National EMS Scope of Practice Model, emerging science, current EMS practice, and EMS patient care needs. To be considered by the Expert Panel, skills and practices MUST be able to demonstrate an improvement of patient outcomes.  If desired, click to download the 2007 National EMS Scope of Practice Model. To assist your response to this assessment, participants are encouraged to download and print a compendium of skills from the 2007 Model: National SoPM Skill Comparison.  Questions or comments can be directed to NASEMSO Program Manager,  Kathy Robinson. Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide your input.
