Protocol Manuals

Saskatchewan has two protocol manuals, with members advised to use the manual suitable to their level of practice. Members currently working under an expanded scope of practice in health care facilities and fixed/rotary-wing services will continue to operate under their respective manuals.

These protocols represent a consensus of medical opinion using the best available evidence for dealing with most situations paramedics encounter. They are designed to be supported by appropriate education and training found through other sources. Members using these manuals must ensure they successfully complete the appropriate training, and possess the necessary knowledge and skills to be competent, before performing any procedure in this manual.

Before using either manual, members should read the introduction and user guide sections and become familiar with how your particular manual is to be used.

NOTE: Any material that is printed is considered an uncontrolled copy. Ensure that you are always working from the most current version of each protocol manual by checking back here often. Members will also be notified by email of any major changes to the manuals. Always keep your email address with the College up to date.
