Past, present, future: A special College 50th anniversary edition of Response


In celebration of the College's 50th anniversary year, our autumn edition of Response is dedicated to looking back on the past half-a-century of paramedicine, where we are at present, and where we are headed in the future. We talk to the pioneers, the change-makers, and the unsung heroes who have contributed to the evolution of paramedicine into the dynamic and multifaceted profession it is today.

This edition features:

• The face of change: For Victoria’s new CPO, the goal is systemic reform

• Blood, sweat and years: Bill Lord looks back at the past and forward to the future

• Dr Peter O'Meara on the Professionalisation of Paramedicine: Reflections on
50 years of progress

• The evolution of Hato Hone St John's ECPs

• Madeleine O’Donnell: Pioneer of paramedicine tertiary education in SA

• Graham Howie on Paramedicine education in Aotearoa New Zealand: A personal journey

• Rona Halliwell, one of Air Ambulance Victoria's early flight nurses on her sometimes hair-raising experiences

• How representation is helping to close the healthcare gaps for Indigenous Australians

• 50 years of research in paramedicine

And much more!
