Trust research published in Emergency Medical Journal

Paramedic reading clinical manual

A peer-reviewed article, partly written by Research Paramedic Larissa Prothero and Elderly Care Lead Phil Lumbard, has just been published in the Emergency Medical Journal.

Entitled ‘Unplanned, urgent and emergency care: what are the roles that emergency medical services plays in providing for older people with dementia?’ the article was written in partnership with Dr Marina Buswell, Research Associate, as part of the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) at the University of Cambridge.

The research pulled together existing literature on dementia and recommends where future research should be focussed. It concluded that “new ways of working, training or extended paramedical roles should consider specific needs and challenges of responding to people with dementia”.

Larissa said: “This is a really important subject, so I am very pleased that the work we have done with the CLAHRC has been so well received.”

The full article is freely available via Emergency Medical Journal with OpenAthens.
