Paramedics provide medical care by preventing or reducing mortality and morbidity due to illness and injury. Paramedics primarily provide emergent and non-emergent care to patients in and out-of-hospital settings.
As a patient advocate, Paramedics seek to be proactive in affecting long-term health care by working in conjunction with other provider agencies, networks, and organizations. The emerging roles and responsibilities of the Paramedic include, community healthcare, public education, health promotion, and participation in injury and illness prevention programs. These in addition to more traditional roles in pre-hospital Medicine with ambulance services, fire departments, flight programs as well as within hospital critical access care areas.
