Paramedic clinical judgment of mental illness: Representations of official accounts

Ramon Shaban

Abstract


This paper is the fourth in a series that heralds a study that examines paramedic accounts and constructs of judgment and decision-making (JDM) of mental health and mental illness. This paper will provide the results of one stage of this study in which a discourse-historical case study of paramedic JDM of mental health and mental illness using ethnographic and ethnomethodological research methods was conducted. Preliminary themes describing the ways in which paramedics officially account for their judgments of mental illness will be presented.
