1 EDUCATION STANDARDS The Scope of Practice does not have regulatory authority, but provides guidance to States. Adherence to the Scope of Practice would increase uniformity in EMS practice throughout this country and facilitate reciprocity between States. Leadership for this project was delegated to the National Association of State EMS Officials and funded by NHTSA and HRSA. The Scope of Practice does not have regulatory authority, but provides guidance to States. Adherence to the Scope of Practice would increase uniformity in EMS practice throughout this country and facilitate reciprocity between States. Leadership for this project was delegated to the National Association of State EMS Officials and funded by NHTSA and HRSA. Further, the document describes each level of licensure as distinct and distinguished by unique skills, practice environment, knowledge, qualifications, services provided, risk, level of supervisory responsibility, and amount of autonomy and judgment/critical thinking/decision making. The Standards also assume there is a progression in practice from the Emergency Medical Responder level to the Paramedic level. That is, licensed personnel at each level are responsible for all knowledge, judgments, and behaviors at their level and at all levels preceding their level. For example, a Paramedic is responsible for knowing and doing everything identified in that specific area, as well as knowing and doing all tasks in the three preceding levels. Preparatory Includes EMR Uses simple knowledge of the EMS system, safety/well-being of the EMR, medical/legal issues at the scene of an emergency while awaiting a higher level of care. EMT Applies fundamental knowledge of the EMS system, safety/well-being of the EMT, medical/legal and ethical issues to the provision of emergency care. AEMT(Same as EMT) Applies fundamental knowledge of the EMS system, safety/well-being of the AEMT, medical/legal and ethical issues to the provision of emergency care. Paramedic Integrates comprehensive knowledge of EMS systems, the safety/well-being of the paramedic, and medical/legal and ethical issues which is intended to improve the health of EMS personnel, patients, and the community.
