Alternative Pathways – All things comms, secondary triage and ECP

About The Event

With paramedics seeing more low acuity cases, focus shifts to community care, chronic illness management and keeping patients out of hospital. How do comms and secondary triage assist with low acuity cases, what is the role of ECP and when can paramedics utilise alternative pathways. This presentation is designed for Tasmanian Paramedics with local referral services and guidelines being referenced.
