Multiple national organizations are engaged in ongoing efforts to develop, implement and evaluate prehospital evidence-based guidelines (EBGs). The National Prehospital Evidence-Based Guidelines Strategy developed by the National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP) with the involvement of 57 stakeholder organizations recognized a need to develop sustainable relationships among stakeholders and facilitate collaborative prehospital EBG efforts. The first proposed action of the Strategy was the creation of a Prehospital Guidelines Consortium (PGC) representing national medical and EMS organizations that have an interest in prehospital EBGs and their benefits to patient outcomes.

Consortium Objectives

  1. Promote EMS EBG development research
  2. Promote the development of EMS EBGs
  3. Promote education related to EMS EBGs
  4. Promote implementation of EMS EBGs
  5. Promote standardized evaluation methods for EMS EBGs
  6. Promote funding for EMS EBGs-related projects
