Abstract

The ALTC funded a year long national research project into paramedic education in Australia in 2008. The partnership between industry and the universities in developing this new discipline was explored, and there was a survey of collaborative practices overseas. One aim of the project was to formally establish a paramedic academic network to foster an exchange of educational ideas. Data gathering included interviews with paramedic educators in the UK, New Zealand and Canada.
