International Education Conference: Day Five

About The Event

Day Five: Transition to Professional Practice

Friday 16th April BST & AEST

Day five of the International Education Conference focusses on the theme of Transition to Professional Practice. There is now global recognition that paramedic practice is a unique healthcare discipline with its own evolving professional standards. Paramedic educators are charged with developing entrants to the profession to enable them to practice safely and independently to the highest standards, at the same time as paramedicine itself continues its journey of professionalisation. Education is fundamental to this transition and today is an opportunity for in depth engagement with the challenges of Transition to Professional Practice.

Keynote Speaker

  • Sam Willis Lecturer and Course Coordinator for the Bachelor of Science (Paramedicine), Curtin University. Connection, reflection and participation: creating paramedic communities of practice (PCoP) to support students during Work Integrated Learning (WIL): an Australian perspective. - This presentation reports the findings of a national survey relating to the experiences of student paramedics during WIL with jurisdictional ambulance services and discusses the use of paramedic-specific communities of practice (CoP) as a process for supporting students through the complex WIL environment.

Speakers

Sam Willis

Lecturer and Course Coordinator for the Bachelor of Science (Paramedicine), Curtin University. Connection, reflection and participation: creating paramedic communities of practice (PCoP) to support students during Work Integrated Learning (WIL): an Australian perspective ~ Sam Willis is an experienced academic paramedic and is currently the course coordinator for the Bachelor of Science (Paramedic) at Curtin University in Western Australia. He proactively contributes to the profession in a number of ways for example he is co-editor of the internationally selling ‘Fundamentals of Paramedic Practice: a systems approach’ by Wiley publishers and the more recent (2021) problem-based learning (PBL) case study text ‘Clinical Cases in Paramedicine’. His research interests include the role of community in paramedicine, and through his current doctoral studies is exploring the use of Immersive Virtual Reality Communities of Practice (IVRCoP) for supporting students during Work Integrated Learning (WIL). Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is an integral part of a student paramedic’s educational experience. Results from an online survey conducted as part of a two-phase doctoral degree show that student paramedic experiences of Work Integrated Learning (WIL) vary.
