foundation for paramedic practice review
on 10 March 2009
Having just started as a practice placement educator of student paramedics who are being trained jointly with Swansea University and the Welsh Ambulance service ,I found this book very helpful in helping me understand the needs of my students and what they are looking to learn. Having become a paramedic through the IHCD route it has helped me understand the theoretical/university aspect of their learning needs. It is a book that I have advised my students to get hold of. It is written in an easy style that is simple to read and that links well to other chapters within the book. It has also opened my eyes to some things that I could put in to practice on the job and confirmed some things that I am doing right. I don't know if this book is being used by the staff on the course at the university but I for one shall be informing them and all the students I come into contact with to get hold of a copy. The chapters are short, concise and with good references for further reading, it covers all the topics I believe are relevant to the students course and cannot fail to stand them in good stead if they put into practice what they read and learn from this book.
