A need to balance technical and non-technical skills

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Paramedicine is a profession accustomed to change. Our profession has been rapidly changing and advancing, new clinical procedures are continuously introduced and professional responsibilities are expanding, while legislation and accreditation requirements help to enshrine our changing roles and ongoing professional advancement. At the coalface, individual paramedics practise their profession in real-world settings that are inherently diverse, uncontrolled and continuously changing: each case is different, each scene presents different complexities, and each patient has different expectations of their paramedic. How, then, can we ensure that paramedics have the capabilities to thrive within a profession that deals with so much change, complexity and even uncertainty?
