National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
This course guide is intended to assist course coordinators in planning and managing a course to train emergency medical technicians to work with ambulance or other specialized rescue services. Materials are presented to enable students to perform the following functions: recognize the nature and seriousness of the patient's condition or extent of his injuries to assess requirement for emergency care; administer appropriate emergency care to stabilize the patient's condition; and lift, move, position, and otherwise handle the patient in such a way as to minimize discomfort and further injury. The guide is divided into the following sections: the instructional program (course goals, skills of the competent emergency medical technician-ambulance, student qualifications, course scope and objectives, and course design); course planning considerations (course scheduling, class size, instructor qualifications, materials and equipment, facilities, and course costs); and program management and evaluation (maintaining records, assessing student achievement, and program evaluation).
