THE OBJECT OF THIS PROGRAM WAS TO STUDY VARIOUS METHODS FOR DEVELOPING EMS DATA ON WHICH GOVERNMENTAL DECISION-MAKING MIGHT BE BASED. AFTER THE STUDY, ONE METHOD WAS CHOSEN AND DEVELOPED INTO A COMPLETE EMS ASSESSMENT MODEL. WORK STARTED WITH A BASELINE QUESTIONNAIRE DEVELOPED UNDER NATO. THIS WAS REFINED, EXPANDED, AND FIELD TESTED IN A NUMBER OF STATES WITH THE INTENTION THAT, UNDER NATO, IT MIGHT BECOME AN INTERNATIONAL STANDARD FOR EMS ASSESSMENT.
