The QAS Clinical Practice Manual (CPM)  includes Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs), Clinical Practice Procedures (CPPs) and Drug Therapy Protocols (DTPs).

These policies:

  • inform and guide clinical decision making by ambulance clinicians
  • provide instructions to perform authorised clinical procedures
  • provide directions for the administration of authorised pharmacological agents in prescribed circumstances.

The Clinical Practice Manual (CPM) is expressly intended for use by authorised QAS clinicians when performing duties and delivering ambulance services for, and on behalf of the QAS.

The QAS disclaims, to the maximum extent permitted by law, all responsibility and all liability including without limitation, liability in negligence for all expenses, losses, damages and costs incurred for any reason associated with the use of this manual, including the materials within or referred to throughout this document being in any way inaccurate, out of context, incomplete or unavailable.

We've also developed a Clinical Scope of Practice [PDF 376.56 KB] to use with the practice manual.
