This course, in conjunction with Clinical Paramedicine 1, introduces the student to paramedicine, out-of-hospital care and the paramedic profession at the BLS level. Initially the student will be presented with paramedic care models and the practice of paramedicine. Medical health assessment and diagnosis, basic electro cardiology and drug administration systems will be introduced. Utilising models of practice and CPGs the student, in a small team, will plan and present the main topics of the course relating to medical disorders/syndromes. Throughout the course a problem-based learning model will be used and students will be constantly encouraged to develop critical thinking processes.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
