As per The Regulated Health Professions Act, the Council is required to develop a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for Paramedic Profession. Practice Expectations support the Code of Ethics and the Standards of Practice for Paramedic Profession by addressing examples of behaviors that may inadvertently put a paramedic at risk of violation.
What is a Practice Expectation?
Practice expectations set the behavioral standard for those aspects and activities of paramedic practice that are not specifically defined within the RHPA or its associated regulations on paramedicine. Compliance with approved practice expectations will provide guidance in areas where professionalism may be inadvertently compromised.
