This second and final article of the series shows that the paramedic profession is not alone in experiencing the problems of risk and avoidable patient harm. We explore the science behind why professionals may perceive and respond to risk in very different ways, both within paramedicine and across the emergency professions. Our series concludes by discussing established models of self-efficacy which may help individual paramedics and teams as they work to respond to (and recover from) the problems of risk and avoidable harm within paramedic practice environments.
