What Drives EMS Protocol Changes?

Joined by Mark Albert, Tim Noonan and Josh K, this weeks Office Hours discussed some thought processes behind protocol changes in EMS. Focused at recent changes in Morphine within proposed NYC REMAC guidelines, Mark gave some insight to the process that includes evidence based study, drug make-up and the many steps before a protocol gets changed (sort of like that old PBS skit on how a Bill becomes Law).
