Abstract

There are 10 emergency paramedic services in Australia and New Zealand (Australasia), referred to as jurisdictional ambulance services (JASs). All 10 of the JASs in Australasia produce their own clinical practice guidelines (CPGs). With differing approaches to their review and implementation of new evidence, there is opportunity for differences to arise between guidelines. This article outlines a new series that will aim to identify interjurisdictional differences in CPGs and paramedic scopes of practice, and consequently differences in patient treatment depending on which jurisdiction a patient is geographically located within at the time of their complaint.
