Sessions are classroom style, and applicants may have more than one submission for any type of session. All speakers will be featured in the conference program and receive complimentary registration for the event.

General topic areas may include the past, present and future of paramedic services; the value of community paramedicine programs; lessons learned; innovations; hot topics/trends; new technologies; CP program development, implementation, evaluation and results; the Triple Aim; government relations; finance; navigation; and volunteerism. 

Approximately 300 paramedic service administrators, chiefs, executive directors and others typically from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States are expected to attend. Additional information and a preliminary program will be posted the IRCP website after proposals are accepted.
