CBRM Community-Based Paramedic Program

Thursday June 28, 2018

A new Community-Based Paramedic Program is coming to CBRM. Paramedics will care for patients at home, do follow-up visits after they’ve been discharged from the hospital, and support residents with chronic diseases, all of which will reduce unnecessary trips to emergency departments.

Jeff Fraser, Director of Provincial Operations, Emergency Health Services, speaks to the value of this new program.
