Australasian Paramedic Clinical Practice Guidelines

Marc and Sonja are actively drafting clinical practice guidelines, to be endorsed by Paramedics Australasia, as exemplar CPGs to be used by professional paramedics in Australia and New Zealand as educational resources.  These CPGs have been written by examining the current CAA-member ambulance service CPGs and combining them.  No differentiation is made between Advanced Care Paramedic and Critical or Intensive Care Paramedic scopes of practice.  These CPGs are for educational reference only and do not grant anyone authority to practice paramedicine.  Users are advised to consult these CPGs at their own risk.


We are currently inviting interested paramedics to contact provide feedback on these CPGs on our discussion forum page.  There is a discussion thread for each CPG.  You can also contact us directly via
