More staff passing module seven courses

The latest group of student ambulance paramedics (SAPs) completed their module seven course in Melbourn on Friday (2nd May), bringing the total number up to 37 since April.

Over the last eight weeks, the group have been learning the essential paramedic skills with revision of anatomy and physiology, focussing on pathophysiology to support their clinical decision making. Subjects have been taught by the educator team, subject matter experts and through facilitated student discussion groups.

The students will now take on hospital placements to apply the skills they have learnt in the classroom. They will work in operating theatres to practice airway management; in emergency departments to practice wound closure and cannulation and in coronary care wards to practice ECG interpretation.

After this, they will write a case study which will be submitted to the University of East Anglia. Once they pass this final stage, they are then ready to apply to the Health and Care Professions Council for their paramedic registration.

Chief Executive Anthony Marsh said: “I am very pleased to see our students progressing and finishing their module seven course. I wish this group and all of our students the very best for their future careers as paramedics.”
