Emergency Medical Responder Program

Program Overview
EMR Program

The Emergency Medical Responder program was designed as the entry level ambulance program for the ambulance profession. Recent additions to the program have now led to many students completing the FMR program instead and then continuing to the Primary Care Paramedic program where the employment outlook is more favourable.

The program is designed as an entry level program to work in the ambulance profession and includes information on documentation, ambulance driving and roles and responsibilities. Graduates of the Professional Medical Associates' programs are eligible to complete the Provincial Registration Examination and become registered as Emergency Medical Responders with the Alberta College of Paramedics and eligible to work in the province of Alberta.

Goal:
The goal of this course is to provide the EMR with the skills, knowledge and confidence to appropriately manage various traumatic and medical emergencies with in the cooperation of the Fire Service, while providing the opportunity to become registered health care providers as members of the Alberta College of Paramedics. The benefit for potential students is that they are eligible for registration as an EMR and benefit from continuing education.

Delivery Method:
The program will be presented through a delivery model demonstrating maximal success in the past. This includes lecture and practical sessions, supplemental interactive multi-media presentations and home-study and review packages. Programs are delivered by experienced PCP, or ACP personnel with extensive field and training experience.

Student Evaluation:
Students will be assessed on an on-going basis in practical sessions as well as regular review quizzes and examinations. Final examinations will be by way of practical and theory examinations, designed to cover all aspects of the course and will be 200 questions in multiple choice format. Unit examinations will be marked to assist the student in gauging their performance throughout the course.

Learning Resources:
Course textbook is Emergency Care of the Sick and Injured, 11th edition, American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons. Further supplemental materials would include readings of interest to students, copies of applicable legislation as well as multi-media or computer based learning materials as required and developed fully.
