At the conclusion of this presentation, the participant will be able to:
- Describe the tools used to evaluate program resources and outcomes in accredited paramedic programs.
- Integrate data from the resource assessments and outcomes surveys into the long-term planning process.
- Examine the roles of the students, graduates, program personnel, sponsor, and advisory committee in the strategic planning process.
