3 Minute Thesis: How do paramedics navigate conveyance decisions?

This research aimed to explain how paramedics navigate conveyance decisions. Constructivist grounded theory methodology has been employed to answer this research question, well suited due to the dearth of knowledge in the substantive area. This research has identified the theme: in the absence of certainty, defer to the ED.
