This unit will introduce you to foundational clinical paramedicine including information gathering, clinical assessment, diagnostic evaluations, and the management of simple medical and trauma cases. In this unit you will learn about ethical health care, professional communication, safe practice and the mindful, patient-centred application of clinical skills. The unique, diverse environment in which paramedics operate will be explored, as will cultural sensitivities, manual handling, infection control principles and the role of followership in a team setting. Attendance and active engagement are important in gaining the required level of understanding and clinical practice.
