The community have an ongoing expectation that a paramedic will consistently deliver a high-quality professional service. To that end, this course focuses on the practical application of the knowledge acquired in Cardiovascular and Respiratory Conditions and Emergencies. As paramedics often work in challenging environments, the practical skills learnt in this course are integral to safe and effective paramedic practice.

This course is a competency-based course, and assessment items must be successfully completed to pass the course. These competency items form part of the USQ accreditation agreement with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

This course is designed to offer students a comprehensive educational experience. While the core theory is covered in associated second year courses, the focus of this course is to consolidate knowledge through the practical application of concepts, guidelines, procedures and protocols. Furthermore, this course progressively builds on the foundational skills learned in first year.
