Coventry University competes in the Student Paramedic International Rally of Emergency Simulations (SPIRES) 2016


RegistrationRegistration for the SPIRES event took place on the first day at Oxford Brookes University, providing an opportunity to meet the paramedic science team and the representatives from HEI's and neighbouring ambulance service trusts. Dr John Black, medical director for South Central Ambulance Service, delivered a formal welcome to the competing teams and promised an exciting weekend for all competitors (South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, 2016). During registration students were encouraged to involve themselves in the social media dialogue and contribute their ‘team selfie’ to the SPIRES2016 online hashtag. This was a brilliant way to communicate with the wider paramedic community and build excitement at the event. After the reception, each team received a SPIRES itinerary and were directed to their accommodation on the OBU campus.
