Best of the Best – Developing a competency framework for contemporary paramedic practice in Canada.

Paramedic practice continues to evolve internationally, and there is a duty to ensure paramedic education reflects the complexity of contemporary paramedic practice, and outlines the features required for competent practice in diverse contexts. This research used a novel six-step model to identify and explore paramedic practice across Canada. The draft framework contains 27 professional activities across five domains: person-centered care, collaborative care, safe care, self care and professional care.
