The current article describes how an innovative approach to mental health
training for student paramedics can prepare the future workforce with
the skills and knowledge needed to provide high-quality care. Action
research methodology is used to describe the delivery and evaluation of
the placement, identifying its key and sustainable learning impacts for all
involved. Key to its success was the co-production of the placement from
beginning to end, including service users and qualified paramedics. The
outcome of the placement enabled students to develop the confidence and
ability to provide compassionate person-centred care as well as the skills to
cultivate self-care and resilience.
