This may require adapting to new delivery protocols, or training curriculum to maintain certification.An increasing challenge is adapting to the changing nature of healthcare delivery in the United States. With healthcare reform, regulatory changes, and changing reimbursement, the EMT profession is evolving.

To provide successful response, all agency personnel must work together.In addition, the delivery of care is often provided to individuals who are afraid or even panicked.
