Author: 
National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH),
National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO)

In 2010, the Joint Committee on Rural Emergency Care (JCREC) developed "Improving Access to EMS and Health Care in Rural Communities: A Strategic Plan" which was approved by both the National Association of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) and the National Association of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Officials (NASEMSO). This discussion paper is intended to further the community paramedicine elements of that strategic plan.
