Position Statements

We hold responsibility for the initial receipt and review of suggested position statement topics and provide preliminary recommendations regarding the fate of these suggestions to the NAEMSP Board of Directors.

Following Board sanctioning of a writing project, we also hold responsibility for oversight of the project and moderate the timely achievement of writing tasks.

Finally, we perform a committee-level review of the project writing team’s completed product prior to consideration by the Board of Directors for ratification and publication in Prehospital Emergency Care.

Guiding Documents, Forms and Policies

Position Statements and Resource Documents primarily authored by NAEMSP are managed per the Document Lifecycle Policy. Documents, including Joint Position Statements, primarily authored by organizations other than NAEMSP are subject to the review and revision standards of the parent organization.
