Proposed Regulation respecting the professional activities that may be engaged in within the framework of pre-hospital emergency services and care

Corps

The main objective of the proposed regulation is to confer new medical duties on ambulance technicians trained in advanced care, thereby increasing their training requirements.

In a letter to the President of Office des professions, the Québec Ombudsperson welcomed the fact that a wider range of advanced pre-hospital care services would be available from ambulance technicians across Québec. However, she cautioned that, as the required training programs are not yet available, transitional provisions must be included to ensure the continuity of services currently provided.
