College Updates

COVID-19 Pandemic Information

All Emergency Medical Responders and Paramedics should refer to the Government of Saskatchewan’s website Saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus. It is the central source of information for both the public and health care workers, and is updated frequently as the situation evolves. The SCoP office is currently closed to the public, but business is continuing as usual

Protocol Manual, Spring 2020 update

Version 6.1 of the Clinical Practice Protocols manual is now available on our website. The changes to this version include the following:

CME and Program Audits

A statutory mandate of the Saskatchewan College of Paramedics (SCoP) is to assure the public of the competence of our members. This is achieved, in part, by setting standards for Continuing Medical Education (CME) and programs offered by outside organizations or by employers. SCoP monitors these programs to ensure members meet the standards. CME credits are required of each member on an annual basis in order to be eligible for licence renewal.

Professional Liability Insurance

Professional liability insurance for paramedics is becoming a topic of interest in part due to recent high profile cases of professional misconduct in other parts of Canada. Facing the prospect of losing the ability to work in the profession, being sued by patients and their families, and even jail time, paramedics across the country should be thinking about how they’ll manage in the event that their professional conduct comes into question.
