OBJECTIVES: Emergency departments (ED) continue to be overburdened, leading to crowding and elevated risk of negative clinical outcomes. Extending clinical services to paramedics may support efforts to improve ED burdens by promoting health care access and capacity during times of patient crisis. The objective of this study was to identify the clinical course and most responsible diagnosis of patients transported by paramedic services to local EDs to then evaluate impact of various augmented 9-1-1/paramedic clinical service models on the need for additional ED services...

Video scenarios have been used to explore clinical reasoning during interviews in Think Aloud studies. This study used nominal group technique with experts to create video scenarios to explore the ways paramedics think and reason when caring for children who are sick or injured. At present there is little research regarding paramedics' clinical reasoning with respect to performing non-urgent procedures on children. A core expert panel identified the central structure of a prehospital clinical interaction and the range of contextual factors that may influence a paramedic's clinical reasoning [the way in which information is gathered, interpreted and analysed by clinicians]...

INTRODUCTION: Older people with multimorbidities frequently access 999 ambulance services. When multimorbidities include dementia, the risk of ambulance use, accident and emergency (A&E) attendance and hospital admission are all increased, even when a condition is treatable in the community. People with dementia tend to do poorly in the acute hospital setting and hospital admission can result in adverse outcomes. This study aims to provide an evidence-based understanding of how older people living with dementia and other multimorbidities are using emergency ambulance services...

Healthcare research is developing in France, notably through hospital nursing and paramedical research programmes. Few research projects involve the patients as investigators as part of collaborative studies. These approaches favour the involvement of all the players concerned. Thereby, healthcare research, due to its holistic dimension, encourages the development of collaborative practices between researchers, patients and caregivers.

Generating knowledge through quality research is fundamental to the advancement of professional practice in emergency nursing and care. There are multiple paradigms, designs and methods available to researchers to respond to challenges in clinical practice. Systematic reviews, randomised control trials and other forms of experimental research are deemed the gold standard of evidence, but there are comparatively few such trials in emergency care. In some instances it is not possible or appropriate to undertake experimental research...

BACKGROUND: Paramedics respond to emergency scenes in often uncontrolled settings without being aware of potential risks. This makes paramedicine one of the most dangerous occupations. One of these dangers is the risk of contracting infectious diseases. Research in this area is predominantly focused on compliance in the use of protective equipment, attitudes and perceptions of paramedics, infectious disease policy, and exposure rates to blood and body fluids. The purpose of this scoping review was to determine what is known about the impact of infectious disease on the health of paramedics...

BACKGROUND: Paramedics make important and increasingly complex decisions at scene about patient care. Patient safety implications of influences on decision making in the pre-hospital setting were previously under-researched. Cutting edge perspectives advocate exploring the whole system rather than individual influences on patient safety. Ethnography (the study of people and cultures) has been acknowledged as a suitable method for identifying health care issues as they occur within the natural context...
