The history of violence in Colombia (South America), initially presented as an obstacle for the adequate operations of the emergency medical system. But with the development of a modern system, articulated with the different basic and advanced emergency response institutions, altogether with a process of academic structuring coordinated by the Colombian Association of Prehospital Care (ACAPH), has allowed that this unfortunate experience serve as a model for governmental educational policy development for voluntary groups that participate in the scene response and for the medical and paramedical personnel both private and public that perform prehospitalc care. La historia de violencia en Colombia (Sur Am�rica), inicialmente fue un obst�culo para el adecuado funcionamiento de los sistemas de emergencia. El desarrollo de un sistema moderno, articulado con las diferentes instituciones de respuesta b�sica y avanzada, en conjunto con un proceso de estructuraci�n acad�mica coordinado por la Asociaci�n Colombiana de Atenci�n Prehospitalaria (ACAPH), ha permitido que esta desafortunada experiencia sirva como modelo de desarrollo de pol�ticas educativas gubernamentales para los grupos voluntarios que intervienen en la escena y para el personal m�dico y param�dico tanto a nivel p�blico como privado que realiza atenci�n prehospitalaria.
