The UMBC-CCEMTP(SM) Program is designed 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.
The CCEMTP(SM) resource guide is a curriculum divided into broad modules. Each module has a specific instructional goal, a rationale (establishing a connection with the desired benefits of the program), a list of necessary equipment to demonstrate various critical care techniques, the required readings and the learning objectives.
Each lesson contains a focus statement (providing a specific direction about the topic and how it will contribute to the development of the participants), a list of learning objectives, demonstration equipment, additional readings, handouts, and a lesson outline.
The UMBC-Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program is designed to prepare paramedics and nurses to function as members of a critical care transport team. Critical patients that must be transported between facilities require a different level of care from hospital or emergency field patients.
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
