Course Details

This course focuses on personal health, wellness and nutrition; leadership; and current challenges and policies in healthcare. Learners will apply concepts related to health, wellness and nutrition to make effective personal choices to promote a healthy lifestyle. This course will provide a foundation for learners to apply these concepts throughout the Advanced Care Paramedic (ACP) Advanced Diploma program to paramedic calls and case studies. Learners will work through a number of assignments in groups, thereby enabling them to practice both working effectively in teams and to practice taking on a leadership role. Current challenges and policies in healthcare including topics of addiction, homelessness, youth crises, and mental health are introduced through case studies, research and discussion. Learners will focus on emergency health issues faced in particular in small rural communities. As leadership skills are developed, learners will begin to consider their role and potential influence in the broader health care system. (Formerly PARA313)
