The Inaugural DCEHPP/ANZCP Paramedicine Research Symposium was held at Peninsula Campus in July 2018. After signing a memorandum of understanding for the next 3 years, this conference saw ANZCP and DCEHPP align their goal to provide a premier research symposium, attracting key researchers from Australia and internationally. The two day symposium was attended by approximately 50 delegates from a diverse range of countries and a large number of different academic institutions. The symposiums included workshops with Hugh Kearns, openings from AV CEO Tony Walker, Prof David Copolov (Pro-Vice Chancellor Major Campuses and Student Engagement) and Prof Terry Haines (Head of the School of Primary and Allied Health Care).
With research skills sessions presented on Day 1, Day 2 was filled with oral presentations focusing on a range of themes including the Health and Wellbeing of our paramedics, the development of the paramedic profession and early interventions and measurement. Numerous awards were given out at the end of Day 2, with Dr Simon Sawyer awarded the Best Research Presentation, which included sponsorship to present his work at EMS World Expo in Nashville. The Symposium will be held at Peninsula Campus again in November 2019, were we aim to grow on our inaugural year successes.
