Paramedic education: developing depth through networks and evidence-based research - Finding the ideal pedagogy

Helen Marshall

Abstract


The issues discussed relate to the best ways in which universities can create ‘road ready’ practitioners. It is clear, however, that there is no consensus on what constitutes a work-ready paramedic. Some focus group participants mentioned deficient clinical skills, but when this term is unpacked it seems to mean under-developed communication and interpersonal competencies. These competencies may be gained through ‘underpinning sciences’ or ‘soft skills’ subjects such as psychology and sociology.
