Community Paramedic Evaluation Tool

Description

The Community Paramedic Evaluation Tool is a self-assessment tool to be used by communities that wish to assess the current status of their paramedicine program.

Although the tool should be useful across urban and rural programs, it is specifically designed to address rural settings in which community health/public health resources are often limited.
