Just over a decade ago the Government published The Plan: a plan for investment and a plan for reform (DoH 2000) with the aim of creating a health service fit for the 21st century. This vision shaped the beginning of a climate of change by examining the service's responsiveness to the needs of its users, measured levels of quality, widened its accessibility and provided guidance for the service and its staff in accomplishing its target. Key components of the guidance included clear leadership, new ways of working and most importantly investment in its current workforce to develop skilled practitioners and teams with the knowledge and skills required to deliver excellence in care.
Peter Bradley’s document - Taking Healthcare to the Patient (DoH 2005) endorsed the need for a transformation of current service provision and for the development Paramedic practice. This became the corner stone of modernisation within the Ambulance Service, not only in relation to clinical practice but academic development and career pathways for Paramedic practitioners. With this in mind the BSc (Hons) Developing Paramedic Practice has been designed not only to develop individuals, but to influence the NHS service as a whole.
Students will be assessed in a variety of ways, including exams, essays, presentations, posters, case study analyses and clinical examinations.
