Reimagining the ambulance services of the future: An evidence based redesign

In the last twenty years, there has been a substantial rise in the demands placed on modern paramedic systems. The traditional response model of deploying more ambulances to meet the increasing demand is no longer sustainable. In this presentation, we invite you on a journey through a collection of research papers that delve into novel and pioneering practices within the field of paramedicine. Our main objective is to answer a fundamental question: What does the ideal paramedic system encompass?
