Scope of practice waiver requests

Medical directors may submit a request to modify the Colorado standard EMS scope of practice for the EMS service(s) they oversee. This allows the EMS providers affiliated with that service to preform acts or administer drugs that are outside of their scope of practice. Completed waiver requests must be submitted by the deadlines below to be considered during the next Emergency Medical Practice Advisory Council meeting. To apply for a waiver, registered medical directors must log on to their OATH account and click on applications.
