This unit is the second in a series of supervised clinical practice units designed to further develop your knowledge, skills and application of paramedic practice. Topics include the following: assessing, diagnosing, planning, implementing and evaluating patient care in the out of hospital phase of emergency care; effective scene management including logistics, safe access and egress, and patient extrication techniques; written and oral communication including patient interviews, radio procedures, writing ambulance report forms and patient handover at hospital. The placement is six weeks and provides a transition from observer to operational ambulance crew member under the supervision of a qualified paramedic mentor. [Designated unit.]
This unit is in the developmental stage of your course and builds on the work you learned in previous paramedic clinical units. This unit provides you with opportunities to strengthen your practice skills and provide evidence of your development as a clinician in a supervised environment. Additionally it is fundamental to this course that you are exposed to an appropriate case load of suitable patients in the out of hospital phase. This unit is the second in a series of three that provide the work integrated learning experience. Over a six week period, you will be required to complete approximately 240 hours of placement to be conducted externally through the Queensland Ambulance Service.
This is a designated unit. Designated units include professional experience units, units requiring the development of particular skills, and units requiring the demonstration of certain personal qualities, and are deemed to be critical to progress in your course. At the end of each semester, if you fail to achieve a passing grade in this unit you may be eligible for a period of probation or exclusion.
The aim of this unit is to build on your previous supervised clinical practice in CSB331. During this clinical field placement your level of practice will evolve to that of a patient care officer in a supervised student capacity.
Successful completion of this unit requires you to provide evidence of the ability to:
Clinical Practice will be conducted in the prehospital environment under the supervision of an appropriately qualified clinical mentor. One of the crew members will be an appropriately qualified clinical mentor.
This unit will include:
This unit engages you in work-integrated learning experiences. Through the reflection of performance in the course experience to date, you are gaining knowledge of self and therefore better able to understand human behaviour and what motivates others. Knowledge of self, identify and culture influences the quality of care of patients and is developed through reflections on the learning experiences during placement. Your interpersonal skills and attributes, your continuing personal and professional development, are evidenced and assessed in practice and recorded in your portfolio.
Your mentored clinical experience is vital. It is during this time you begin to transfer your knowledge and skills into the environment where you will practise as an ambulance paramedic. Your Paramedic Mentor will guide and support you throughout this and your future field practicums. In your clinical foundation units, and CSB331 Paramedic Clinical Practice 1 in semester 1 and 2, you were introduced to the ambulance environment as an observer. The challenge for you now is to build on these developing clinical leadership skills, to transition from observer to an operational ambulance crew member in the supervised capacity as a student paramedic. The speed at which you transition is dependent on your confidence, ability to reflect on your engagement with these real world learning experiences.
