Written by leading paramedics and academic subject experts, with a foreword by Paul Bates, this is the first foundation level text to introduce the main theoretical subjects studied on the new higher education paramedic science programmes. It underpins practice and links ways of working to the crucial theory base.
The numerous examples and case studies focus specifically on pre-hospital and emergency care. Key topics covered include:
- NHS and ambulance service history
- Ethics and law for the paramedic
- Communication and reflective practice
- Professional issues, including evidence-based practice, anti-discriminatory practice, clinical governance and clinical audit
- Psychological perspectives on health and ill health
- Safeguarding children
- Sociological perspectives on health and ill health and social policy
- Managing change and leadership theory
- Continuing professional development
The text prompts you to stop and think about what you have just read and relate this to your role. Throughout the book, the author carefully considers how the theory being discussed relates to the role of the ambulance clinician.
Foundations for Paramedic Practice: A Theoretical Perspective is a core text for students of paramedic science and will also provide a valuable resource for students of allied health professions. This text provides a stepping stone to further reading and investigation.
