This unit builds upon the material learned in CAA110 and will advance the development of knowledge of the theory underpinning the practice of paramedicine, enabling you to identify, assess and manage medical and trauma conditions encountered in the out of hospital setting. The epidemiological aspects as well as contemporary and controversial management issues will be addressed. This unit will reaffirm the importance of employing a systematic approach to all patient care and will prepare you for practice as a beginning practitioner.
