The 2014 Edition CPGs may be implemented provided:

  1. The Practitioner is in good standing on the PHECC Practitioner's Register. The Responder maintains current certification as outlined in PHECC Education & Training Standards.
  2. The Practitioner/ Responder is acting on behalf of an organisation (paid or voluntary) that is approved by PHECC to implement the CPGs.
  3. The Practitioner/ Responder is authorised by the organisation on whose behalf he/she is acting to implement the specific CPG.
  4. The Practitioner/ Responder has received training on, and is competent in, the skills and medications specified in the CPG being utilised.

Please note:

Note: In July PHECC published the 2014 edition of the Clinical Practice Guidelines. Following their release we received very welcome feedback from both practitioners and stakeholders.

On foot of this feedback we conducted a post release review of the publication, a small number of misprints were identified.

We have now made the necessary adjustments to the publication which can be downloaded above.

  • Implications for CPG 2014 release
  • PHECC 2014 Edition CPG Manuals for both Practitioner and Responder are only available electronically via download.
  • There has been no change to the Cardiac First Responder level CPGs from the 2012 edition.
