Student Talk: Curtin University Edition - EP1: "Team 000" How do we achieve gold

About the podcast

Host: Sam Willis
Guest: Attiqur Rehman

Ambulance personnel routinely work alongside other emergency services, and while this relationship is deemed essential to providing safe clinical care, the value and processes for achieving an effective cross-disciplinary role can sometimes be an afterthought.  In this student podcast, we shine a light on this important topic and provide an autoethnographic self-reflection from a student paramedic perspective on challenges, frustrations and the future, and we propose a framework to help practitioners prepare for such a situation.
