Moving Paramedicine Forward

Leading the profession

The College sees its role as one of providing leadership to the profession. With the introduction of Paramedic Registration, the College is now focused on how we move the profession forward, establishing a leadership agenda lead (led) by paramedics and the profession, rather than employers and the health system.

Paramedic registration

The College has been a lead player in advocating for Paramedic Registration over many years, having worked consistently to gain agreement across all states and territories of Australia - this work has culminated with the introduction of Paramedic Registration in December 2018.

Mental Health and Wellbeing

The College has been a strong advocate for the mental health and wellbeing for paramedics, leading the need to ensure paramedics are resilient and supported in the key role they play in our community.

This saw the introduction of the Survive and Thrive conference in 2015, the first event of its kind focused solely on paramedic wellbeing; and has since seen local ambulance services and international paramedic Colleges follow our lead of prioritising paramedic mental health and wellbeing.

Paramedic Profession Committee

The primary aim of the Paramedic Profession Committee is to ensure the College meets the changing needs of the Paramedic profession. This is a leadership committee and will play a key role in relation to Paramedic Registration for the College and provide direction on the future of the profession.
