Abstract

This article explores how community engagement by paramedics in an expanded scope role contributes to both
primary health care and to an overall improved emergency response capacity in rural communities. Understanding how expanded
scope paramedics (ESP) can strengthen community healthcare collaborations is an important need in rural areas where low
workforce numbers necessitate innovation.
