Research Participation Opportunity: Help us to understand how we can improve mental health and wellbeing for your fellow paramedics

We’re hoping to recruit approximately 20 Australian paramedics currently practicing with any government ambulance service or private sector provider for a qualitative study, examining identity and help-seeking in paramedics. You don’t need any prior knowledge or past experiences to take part – we’d just love to hear from you!

This is qualitative study, and we will be asking each participant to take part in an interview with us. We will use your de-identified demographic information and responses to the interview questions, and there are no right or wrong answers – every paramedic’s views and ideas are important to us and can help to make a difference in improving the mental health of Australian paramedics.

A suitable day and time will be arranged to meet your needs, and the interview will take place remotely via Zoom.

This study will form part of a PhD research project conducted by Kelly Tow, and is supervised by Prof Peter Caputi and Prof Frank Deane from University of Wollongong, and Dr Liz Thyer and Dr Paul Simpson from Western Sydney University.

Anything else?
For those who participate in the study, a certificate evidencing one hour of research-participation will be provided. In combination with reflection or other tasks, this certificate may be useful for you in contributing towards your CPD requirements. However, prospective participants are encouraged to confirm whether this would be regarded as suitable for them.

Your privacy will be strictly protected. Your participation will be known only to Kelly Tow as the lead investigator, and the data you provide will be de-identified prior to data analysis ensuring your contribution remains confidential.
