A team led by ABC has been awarded funding to develop an interim Community Paramedicine Program Needs Assessment Tool.

The team – Tyne Lunn (Honours student), Cheryl Cameron (PhD student), Dr. Brendan Shannon (Senior Lecturer), and Dr. Alan Batt (Scientist; Adj. Senior Lecturer) all based in the Department of Paramedicine at Monash University will identify and synthesize community health and social care needs assessment tools and frameworks.

These synthesized findings will form an interim tool that the team aim to finalize with Community Paramedicine experts at a convening in Quebec City in June 2024, aligned with the dates of the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada Leadership Summit and the International Roundtable on Community Paramedicine.

The work is being led by Tyne Lunn as part of her Honours work, and supervised by Dr. Alan Batt.

Congratulations to all members of the team, and a thank you to Healthcare Excellence Canada for supporting this important work.
