Pilot Programme for Paramedics

A new pilot programme expanding the role of Paramedics in local communities such as Ouyen has been expanded.  The State Government yesterday announced the The Advanced Paramedic Roles Implementation Pilot which will see them work in settings such as urgent care and primary care, complementing the work of GPs, nurse practitioners and other health workers. The advanced paramedic pilot is the first step towards the
establishment of a paramedic practitioner role in Victoria.
