This course examines the epidemiology of trauma across the lifespan and trends in injury in Australia and internationally. You will analyse the effect that legislation, education and engineering interventions have had on reducing injury in Australia, and will investigate the role of paramedics in injury surveillance and injury prevention. This course will develop the knowledge, critical thinking and technical skills required to respond safely to a request for service, undertake assessment of the environment and the patient/s, and initiate out-of-hospital emergency care.
