Emergency Medical Services Program Administration Prototype Curriculum: Curriculum Guide.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
The curriculum guide was developed for training administrators (new entrants and incumbents), at the college level, in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program administration. It is designed to be comprehensive and to include all knowledge and skills needed to perform the functions and tasks involved in EMS administration and management. The brief first section provides background information on prototype EMS curriculum development. In addition information on the evolution of program design goals, a definition of the training program requirements, and functions and tasks in EMS administration (program planning, implementation, and coordination and evaluation) are discussed. The major section (150 pages) contains the prototype curriculum, presented in 21 curriculum components (each containing several units), grouped into six modules: (1) government and health care, (2) human relations and communications, (3) administration: theory and principles, (4) EMS delivery: dimension and status, (5) EMS delivery systems, and (6) EMS program administration. Provided for each module are: a diagram of the module's scope and the availability of existing programs at the university level, the number of components and instructional units, a brief description of the objectives of the module, references keyed to specific units, and content outlines for each unit of each component.
