Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program (CCEMTP)
UMBC CCEMTP Provider Course: $1599.00 textbook not included
CCEMTP℠ 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 CCEMTP℠ program will assist the clinician in developing the necessary skills and knowledge to manage critical patients during a high-risk transfer. Essentially, CCEMTP℠ is “post graduate education” for the paramedic or nurse that attempts to standardize training and level of care in inter-facility transport.
The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program brings paramedics and nurses together in an effort to bridge the gap between pre-hospital 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.
