Reference and Educational Notes
The RBHs have created a companion document of reference and educational notes intended to assist paramedics in implementing these Medical Directives. This will facilitate regular updating of these notes without having to issue frequent changes to the standards. It is expected that paramedics have mastered the relevant information as part of initial training and certification and have maintained their knowledge through continuing education and self-study. The reference and educational notes do not define a standard of care; however, they should be considered useful in ensuring that an appropriate standard of care is met.
