I  attended and presented at the ANZCP Paramedicine Research Symposium held in Monash University Peninsula Campus today.

The symposium was officially opened by Prof David Copolov AO and Prof Terry Haines from Monash University; and Assoc Prof Tony Walker ASM from Ambulance Victoria.

The symposium is a joint initiative between the Australian and New Zealand College of Paramedicine and Monash University’s Department of Community Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice.

I presented some work from CQU on paramedic student demographics, as well as presenting student-led research from Fanshawe students:

  • The future of Australian ambulance services workforce: five year review of an Australian university’s paramedic science graduate demographics (CQU)
  • The effects of stress on the driving abilities of paramedic students: a before-and-after study (Fanshawe)
  • Can Canadian paramedic students accurately estimate pediatric patient weight? (Fanshawe)
  • Empathy levels among Canadian paramedic students. (Fanshawe)
