Rationale and methods of a multi-centre randomized controlled trial of the effectiveness of a Community Health Assessment Program with EMS implemented on residents aged 55 years and older in subsidized seniors' housing buildings in Ontario

from British Medical Journal

Chronic diseases and falls substantially contribute to morbidity/mortality among seniors, causing this population to frequently seek emergency medical care. Research suggests the paramedic role can be successfully expanded to include community- based health promotion and prevention.

The aims are to reduce EMS calls, improve health outcomes and healthcare utilization. more
