As the peak representative body for paramedics in the region, the Australasian College of Paramedicine (the College) undertakes consultation on the future direction of the profession. To ensure our members are able to have their say, we are releasing a consultation paper that explores the priority areas where the paramedic workforce could be empowered and strengthened to help address the healthcare system and wider workforce needs across Australasia.
Consultation papers are aimed at engaging with and soliciting input from College members, paramedics, paramedic students and stakeholders on these key issues via a corresponding online survey. Consultation papers are released individually via electronic mail, social media and our website advocacy page.
The College is future-focused and committed to enhancing person-centred care through sustainable, evidence-based approaches and holistic, contemporary workforce initiatives that see paramedics and their unique capabilities recognised, valued, utilised, and appropriately funded across healthcare systems.
The College welcomes your feedback and looks forward to collaboratively shaping the future of paramedicine in Australasia. If you have any questions or would like to contact the Advocacy Team about the consultation process or papers, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This consultation, “Paramedicine: Building a future-ready workforce” is now open and will close at 5pm AEST, Sunday 21 May 2023.
We recommend reading the consultation paper before completing the survey.
