What’s in These Terms and Conditions?

These terms and conditions outline the rules and expectations of using iCPG and JRCALC Plus, the JRCALC apps.

Background: The JRCALC Apps

The JRCALC apps, are for information purposes only and are neither a diagnostic or treatment tool. By accessing these apps, you agree to these terms and conditions of use.

The iCPG app is intended for use by individual clinicians using iOS and Android devices. A subscription can be purchased via the Apple App Store or Google Play.

The JRCALC Plus app is a bespoke service which integrates the national JRCALC Guidelines with bespoke local information. The app is intended for adoption by ambulance services and other organisations. It is available to these ambulance service or organisation users with iOS or Android devices. By agreement in writing, some bespoke Windows desktop versions are also available.

Disclaimer

The Association of Ambulance Chief Executives and the Joint Royal Colleges Ambulance Liaison Committee have made every effort to ensure that the information, tables, drawings and diagrams contained in these guidelines are accurate at the time of publication. However, the guidelines are advisory and have been developed to assist healthcare professionals, and patients, to make decisions about the management of the patient’s health, including treatments. This advice is intended to support the decision making process and is not a substitute for sound clinical judgement. The guidelines cannot always contain all the information necessary for determining appropriate care and cannot address all individual situations; therefore, individuals using these guidelines must ensure they have the appropriate knowledge and skills to enable suitable interpretation.

JRCALC has referenced NICE in these guidelines. NICE guidance is prepared for the National Health Service in England and is subject to regular review and may be updated or withdrawn. NICE has not checked the use of its content in these guidelines to confirm that it accurately reflects the NICE publications from which it is taken.

Users of these guidelines must always be aware that alterations after the date of publication cannot be incorporated into the printed edition.

The Association of Ambulance Chief Executives and the Joint Royal Colleges Ambulance Liaison Committee do not guarantee and accepts no legal liability of whatever nature arising from or connected to, the accuracy, reliability, currency or completeness of the content of these guidelines.

Although some modification of the guidelines may be required by individual ambulance services, and approved by the relevant local clinical committees, to ensure they respond to the health requirements of the local community, the majority of the guidance is universally applicable to NHS ambulance services.

Modification of the guidelines may also occur when undertaking research sanctioned by a research ethics committee.

Whilst these guidelines cover a range of paramedic treatments available across the UK they will also provide a valuable tool for a range of care providers. Many of the assessment skills and general principles will remain the same. All clinical staff must practise within their level of training and competence and registered health care professionals are accountable for their own clinical practice. These guidelines are aimed at supporting clinical practice. In some circumstances, particularly because of the nature of prehospital care and the types of situations that are encountered, variation from standard clinical practice as described in these guidelines may be needed. Any deviation from standard practice and the reason for deviation must always be documented in the patient care record.
