Well, I’ve finally got motivated and got on to doing a podcast. This is for the new paramedic, volunteer or paramedic student just beginning their career.
My thanks to my mate Tim from KI-docs for providing the inspiration and for showing me that podcasting doesn’t have to be that scary. Of course I am also indebted to Scott Weingart, Minh Le Cong, Yen Chow and Andrew Tagg, Cliff Reid, Ben Meadley and all the other active FOAMed people who inspire me to continue producing content that might keep up with their efforts.
This is a series of 3 shortish podcasts that are designed for the new paramedic or paramedic student. It is a little look at what I think is important for new paramedics but it is by no means an exhaustive list.
As this is my first podcast, I would love feedback, so please leave comments here, drop me a line at angrayambulancedriver(at)gmail.com or via twitter where my handle is @AmboFOAM.
To listen to the podcasts click on the “play” button, or you can right click the file and select “save as” to download and listen at a later time.
Part 1 is about what we expect from new paramedic students and what to expect when starting on the road (it’s a little long sorry)
Part 2 is about shift work, the toll it takes and some ideas about how to deal with it.
Part 3 is some stuff on human factors, managing jobs, managing yourself.
I hope you enjoy the podcasts, and I hope there is something of value you can take from them. Feedback, as always, is greatly appreciated.
