Commencing in June 2012 Health Workforce Australia (HWA) will implement a project to intoduce an Extended Care Model of Paramedics at selected sites across Australia.

The project will run until June 2014 and will include continuous monitoring and evaluation to allow data collection, analysis and review.

The project is designed to support the national transfer and further implementation of the successful elements of a previously evaluated Extended Care Program and it will increase career pathways and retention strategies for paramedic professionals.
