Great to be here! Love the forum idea.
My role is somewhat different to the standard ‘Paramedic’. My title is ‘Community Specialist Paramedic’ and I work autonomously on a solo response car (fully marked with kit).
On an average day I’ll either have meetings regarding pathway / procedure creation, commissioner engagement or clinical time (both responding to 999 calls or providing remote advice to ambulance staff).
I also get involved with high intensity users as well as health promotion and prevention in the community.
Our scope is huge as CSP’s, and engagement is our middle name! My MSc studies really compliment my role well, as the pillars of Advanced Practice are intertwined in our aims and goals as CSP’s.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge via the Geeky Medics platform, exceptionally useful right now!
