CCEMTP℠ was designed in response to the growing need for qualified specialists in the area of critical care inter-facility transfer. It helps to prepare paramedics and nurses to serve with competence and confidence in meeting the needs of critical care patients undergoing inter-facility transports. While traditional paramedic education programs teach essential skills and provide a knowledge base for the management of patients in the pre-hospital setting, these training programs frequently do not teach the skills and knowledge necessary to manage critical patients between hospitals, specialty referral centers, and extended care facilities. The CCEMTP℠ program will assist the clinician in developing the necessary skills and knowledge to manage critical patients during a high risk transfer. Essentially, CCEMTP℠ is “post graduate education” for the paramedic or nurse that attempts to standardize training and level of care in inter-facility transport.
