On Tuesday 29 June 2010, ACAP policy consultant Ray Bange met with Mr Mark McArdle MLA, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party and Shadow Minister for Health in Caloundra. This was the planned follow up meeting to one held earlier in the month.

The discussions ranged over several of the current issues involving the delivery of EMS including funding arrangements, portfolio responsibilities, community based emergency health services, and the need for national registration of paramedics. The development and expanded use of interprofessional practice models to enhance the provision of, and access to, health care for all members of all communities was a key discussion point.
