This module aims to enable students to effectively critique literature and discuss how practice can be developed with an enhanced evidence base.

The module is designed to allow students to develop an understanding of the research process and how it impacts upon paramedic practice. Both quantitative and qualitative methods will be explored to examine how practice is based upon and can be improved with evidence. The theme of unscheduled, emergency out of hospital contact will be used to offer perspective from a range of different research theories.

Who is this module for?

Students should be registered paramedics with experience of working in the emergency, out of hospital care setting.
