Matt Capsey
Journal of Paramedic Practice, Vol. 2, Iss. 6, 25 Jun 2010, pp 242 - 244

At the Trauma Care conference that took place in Telford in May 2010, Matt Capsey, Senior Lecturer of Paramedic Science at Teeside University, presented a very interesting discussion, titled 'Paramedics - what is our unique selling point?'. Here, he discusses this in more detail, arguing that paramedics must develop a stronger sense of identity and value the unique contribution they bring to patient care.
