Introducing Australia’s first paramedic practitioners.
Who are they — Paramedic Practitioners are ambos with advanced clinical training.
What do they do — They’ll be able to provide urgent care in the field, including assessing, diagnosing and treating patients.
What does this mean — This means less need to make a stressful and time-consuming trip to the emergency department, and more time spent getting better.
