CONSENSUS STATEMENT ON THE ROLE OF EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES IN PRIMARY INJURY PREVENTION
On August 25-26, 1995, at a consensus workshop in Arlington, Virginia, a panel of experts in out-of-hospital emergency medical services (EMS) and injury prevention deliberated, modified and affirmed this consensus statement on the role of EMS in primary injury prevention. The consensus statement project was sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation, and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Department of Health and Human Services, and was directed by the National Association of EMS Physicians. The consensus statement consists of three major parts: 1) An executive summary of principal points; 2) a general statement on the role of EMS in primary injury prevention; and 3) a section called "Creating a Culture of Health Promotion and Safety" in which essential and desirable injury prevention activities and knowledge areas for EMS leaders, decision makers, and individual EMS providers are listed.
