The paramedic team are passionate about their profession as educators and importantly as paramedics. They have always had an ethos of engaging students in the programme and hence in their own development. This joint ownership of the programme ensures that the graduate paramedics who have developed can offer excellent patient care in the communities they work in.
The team are active in clinical practice and all registered with the Health and Care Professions Council as paramedics. This currency is recognised by students and embedded within their teaching and learning. Their focus at all times is quality patient care and this is underpinned by evidence-based practice, which informs the curriculum. The paramedic team would not be able to achieve excellent results and excellence without the collaboration of partners in practice. They strongly believe that the engagement and collaboration with the student body forms the lifeblood of the programmes and each cohort.
The team is extremely proud that the students engage with such a variety of collaborative events and activities. These events and activities range from demonstrations and talks on open days and applicant days, engagement in aspects of the interviewing of applicants, engagement with service users and carer groups, teaching of new nursing students and the teaching of life saving techniques to schools and colleges. The team are proud of their students and the impact they make on society, not only as a paramedic student, but also as a representative of Liverpool John Moores University.
