Finally an EMT-P is the highest level of EMT also known as a paramedic. As a paramedic one is able to do all duties of the lower level EMT and addition one can obtain IV access, fluid resuscitation, pharmaceutical administration as well as other advance procedures. There are other forms of EMT’s, an example would be Tactical Paramedics. Tactical Paramedics work on law enforcement teams and provide care for persons during raids such as the officers, suspects and bystanders involved.

They must practice ONLY methods and procedures that are commonly accepted in their profession in which they were properly trained and supervised. Every medical assistant, whether certified or non-certified, formally trained or trained on the job, must practice their skill only under the direct supervision of the doctor (M.D., PhD), licensed healthcare practitioner, or nurse practitioner who hired them. Medical assistants who disregard established professional standards and attempt to perform procedures or tasks beyond their training, capabilities, or scope of practice are in danger of exposing themselves, patients and supervisors to serious consequences and liability issues. Medical assistants are prohibited from making patient health assessments or judgments regarding medical treatment and may not: * independently triage patients * interpret diagnostic test results * dispense
The AETC have established the SoP for ENPs around the model of care (MOC) (Lowe 2010 p) that was based upon the Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) cited in the Alfred Health website (2012). The areas in the SoP involve prescribing medications, ordering tests, diagnosing results and admitting and discharging patients (Lowe 2010 p). The assessment of minor injuries or illnesses and initiation of treatments are also part of the ENP’s SoP (Lowe 2010 p). Lastly required at the AETC the ENP must also attend educational classes with other ED medical staff, and further additional classes that will identify the gaps between the ENP’s skill and knowledge and own professional development (Lowe 2010 p80). In comparison, Fry’s research (2011, p58) indicated that the NP in the critical care department (CCD) have separated areas which are adult, paediatric and neonate, however all three areas can fall under the same SoP.
It is has been called "the process whereby more and more of everyday life has come under medical dominion, influence, and supervision", and "defining behavior as a medical problem or illness and mandating/licensing the medical professionals to provide some type of treatment for it". Medicalization can occur on at least three distinct levels: conceptual, institutional, and interactional. On the conceptual level, a medical vocabulary is used to define the problem at hand; few medical professionals need to be involved, and medical treatments are not applied. On the institutional level, organizations may adopt a medical approach to treating a particular problem. And on the interactional level, medical professionals diagnose and provide treatments.
