Keynote Speakers

  • Vince Clark, Principal Lecturer in Paramedic Science, University of Hertfordshire - The Paramedic Practice Educator - The Most Important Person in the Room - The importance of the role of the Paramedic Practice Educator can sometimes be overlooked when developing educational pathways for paramedics.
