Included here are several resources we’ve developed over time to help guide the development and implementation of prehospital emergency care programs in resource-limited settings. These documents do not include any clinical emergency care but instead focus on the four core components of any prehospital emergency care system:
- Prehospital Staff and Training
- Emergency Transport
- Emergency Communications
- Management and Sustainability
The documents don’t pretend to be entirely comprehensive — systems will vary greatly in terms of scope and resources — but they are based on extensive reviews of the literature and over 10 years of experience working to develop these systems around the world.
The documents are free to use, but we would appreciate credit when and where they’re used.
The documents include:
- Prehospital Assessment Survey — Used this document to identify available / missing prehospital emergency care resources and capacities
- Pilot Requirements — A checklist of sorts for what needs to be implemented prior to launching a prehospital emergency care pilot program
- Emergency Vehicle Deployment Plan — Use this document to identify and deploy appropriate emergency vehicle across a larger geographic area.
- Stepwise Program Development Plan — A step-by-step guide to designing and implementing a prehospital emergency care program
