Bachelor of Paramedic Science/Graduate Certificate in Emergency and Disaster Management
CQUniversity - Townsville

Course outline

This course recognises the rapidly changing nature of paramedicine. It is critical that paramedicine expand its scope and role nationally and internationally. Students within this course will draw upon the interdisciplinary nature of paramedicine and emergency and disaster management to explore current and emerging trends and national and international approaches, as well as the key concepts and perspectives that underpin contemporary practice in these fields. Students will study with other students from a broad range of disciplines, expand their knowledge and skills and learn to apply this to the various phases of managing prehospital patients and expand on their role to encompass emergency and disaster management.
