CCEMTP Course Details and Description provided below courtesy of UMBC
CCEMTPSM 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 CCEMTPSM program will assist the clinician in developing the necessary skills and knowledge to manage critical patients during a high-risk transfer. Essentially, CCEMTPSM is "post graduate education" for the paramedic or nurse that attempts to standardize training and level of care in inter-facility transport.
The CCEMTPSM Program has been completely redesigned to meet the current needs of the critical care transport provider working in ground, air or fixed wing environments. The new curriculum focuses on advanced level knowledge and assumes that participants come in with a working knowledge of Chemistry, Pharmacodynamics, along with Anatomy & Physiology. The curriculum is truly one that creates a Specialty Care Transport Provider and has been not only 100% peer reviewed by leaders in the industry, but also 100% physician reviewed.
The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Programsm brings paramedics and nurses together in an effort to bridge the gap between prehospital and hospital care. The result is a specialized care provider that has an understanding of both aspects of patient care, and uses the understanding to provide the highest level of care to critical patients during transport.
All locations offering the CCEMTPsm course require that all participants have a current paramedic or nursing license.
Paramedic requirements: A current professional license and a recommended minimum of one year experience in that role.
Nurse requirements: A current professional license and a recommended minimum of one year experience in that role.
