Clinical Paramedicine 2 (HCPAR6002)

This second Clinical Paramedicine course is designed to build upon and extend knowledge and skill developed in Clinical Paramedicine 1. In conjunction with the course Paramedic Clinical Diagnostics 2, this course develops the student's understanding of pre-hospital care to the Advanced Life Support level in out-of-hospital care. The student will be presented with roles and the practice of ALS paramedicine. Utilising models of practice the student will continue to develop theoretical and clinical competencies. These will include an ALS management of patients in moving vehicles, lifting and transferring of ALS patients, working as a member of the health care team and written and interpersonal communications in paramedicine. The course will also review ALS aspects of law and ethics in relation to other emergency services, and crime scenes. Students will be introduced to Multi-Casualty Incident and triage situations. Students will overview the Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance (MICA) level of practice to gain a rounded appreciation of patient care approaches. This leads to undertaking ALS in a paramedic context including resuscitation, medical, trauma and psychological health crisis. Throughout the course problem-based and OSCE learning models will be used and students will be constantly encouraged to develop critical thinking processes.
