of Paramedic Care
Project: Public Perception of Paramedic Care in Saskatchewan
Objective: To gain the insightful thoughts and perspectives of paramedics in engaging public/patients to improve paramedic care Saskatchewan College of Paramedics (SCoP) conducted a “World Cafe” discussion session on “Public/patients Role in Healthcare System” with the paramedic practitioners attending the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of 2018 at the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon, SK.
The discussion had two goals:
- To gain the insightful thoughts and perspectives of paramedics in engaging public/patients to improve paramedic care; and
- How best to create awareness of College and profession to the general public and patients across the province of Saskatchewan.
It is anticipated that the findings would help the College to develop, formulate and implement to improved stakeholder engagement strategies. This would also help with ongoing and future research and development activities of the College.
Findings: 100% of the participants strongly agreed that it is essential to engage the public/patient to gain a greater perspective to achieve sustainable and high-quality paramedic care.
