CCEMTP -- Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program

CareFlite is licensed to offer the CCEMTP!

CCEMTP Patch The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program (CCEMTP) is designed to prepare paramedics and nurses to function as members of a critical care transport team. The program attempts to bridge the gap between pre-hospital and hospital care. The result is a specialized care provider who has both an understanding of aspects of patient care and the ability to provide the highest level of care to critical patients during transport.

Participants will gain an understanding of the special needs of critical patients during transport, become familiar with the purpose and mechanisms of hospital procedures and equipment, and develop the skills to maintain the stability of hospital equipment and procedures during transport.

Curriculum Design:

The CCEMTP Program was designed by UMBC to provide the basic educational foundation required for specialists transporting critical care patients. In addition, it may serve as a springboard for those institutions looking to expand into critical care.
