Better integration of health services and redefinition of health workforce roles through expanding and extending traditional scope of clinical practice have been explored nationally and internationally. This paper examines models of expanded and extended scope of paramedic practice for attributes which facilitate such a practice. Objective Results Conclusions Facilitators of expanded and extended scope of paramedic practice: What makes them work? Jakki Germann, David Lim, Leo McNamara, Vivienne Tippett School of Clinical Sciences, Queensland University of Technology Successful models of expanded and extended practice harness the full capacity of the paramedic practitioner, and are supported by enabling infrastructures, specifically: professional development/ education; clinical guidelines and policy frameworks (boundary); access to physical infrastructure; clinical support from senior medical practitioners; and, ability to directly refer to other health services (service integration). The scope of practice is however influenced by individual employers’ capacity, perceived community needs and preference/ priorities. The potential for paramedic practice is equally applicable to urban as well as rural Australia. The Council of Ambulance Authorities’ Professional Competency Standard provides the form and function for building on paramedic practice. Recognition of such paramedic practice provides a structure for professional growth, process for career progression, support workforce retention, improves healthcare and equity of access. Methods The achievement of enhanced knowledge and skills has positioned the paramedic profession as a valuable part of the healthcare team. The Council of Ambulance Authorities’ Professional Competency Standards provides the form and function for supporting expanded and extended paramedic practice. An exploratory multi-case study analysis of Australia (Queensland), New Zealand, Canada (Alberta) and the United Kingdom (London) expanded and extended paramedic practices were analyzed. © Queensland Ambulance Service.
