Medical oversight of Wilderness EMS presents a challenge, as it must allow the pre-hospital provider to take care of the patient in whatever austere environment they find themselves in without the usual resources. This lecture will lead the group through some of the topics unique to medical oversight of Wilderness EMS and what protocols and other skills can be implemented to optimize care of patients in the wilderness setting.


1. Discuss medical oversight issues for Wilderness EMS

2. Provide an overview of Wilderness EMS protocols and groups
