Further detail

The Paramedicine Research Symposium aims to support the generation and dissemination of research in paramedicine, emergency health and primary health care, to reflect the expanding scope of paramedic practice. This event will bring together academics, clinicians and students with an interest in the development of discipline-specific knowledge through rigorous scientific enquiry that is required to support practice. The forum strongly supports novice researchers, or those with an interest in research as a career pathway through the integration of research training sessions within the symposium, and provides opportunities to develop research support networks, which should include opportunities for national and international collaboration.
