2017 Collaborative Protocols Update
The 2017 NYS Collaborative Protoclols update is here! Now covering 13 of 16 EMS regions, these protocols continue to be a great example of cooperation, as dozens of physicians and EMS leaders from across the state combine resources to establish the best evidence-based protocols possible, for our patients.
Between now and March 1, 2017 (go live date), the Mountain Lakes REMAC expects all providers to conduct self-study sessions to ensure a smooth transition when the protocols go live. Please note that the Apple and Android protocol apps will not be updated to reflect the updates until March 1, 2017.
This is a rather small update for the regions that currently use the Collaborative Protocols, but please note that there are several formatting, formulary and protocol changes throughout. Upon completion of a thorough self-study review, all online and interning ALS providers must complete an open book exam, which is available via the links below. The exam must be completed by March 10, 2017.

These exams are open-book and although each ALS provider is required to complete one, the goal is for them to become comfortable with new protocols, formatting changes and new medications. You can expect to receive a CME certificate a few weeks after submission.
