Abstract

In November 2014, the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine was awarded a contract to evaluate the implementation of the statewide CP Pilot Program in Maine. This report presents process level results from the evaluation. The report includes findings from interviews with the twelve community paramedicine pilot sites in Maine and with the state of Maine EMS office.

The layout of the report follows the key themes and categories from our interviews:

  • Staffing
  • Training
  • Stakeholders and Partners
  • CP Services
  • CP Event
  • Data Collection
  • Funding
  • Challenges
  • Successes
  • Sustainability

The report concludes with lessons learned which may be helpful for future community paramedicine pilot projects.
