Integrating the 6Cs of nursing into paramedic practice


Paramedics' work is >95% urgent, unscheduled care which includes minor injury, illness and other things that do not require us to transport patients immediately to hospital. However, these patients still need the care, compassion, commitment, competency, courage and communication skills of paramedics to help them navigate the care system, refer them to an appropriate provider, or help them to self care at home. We decided to ‘adopt’ these as our core values for every placement that our students attend and state them clearly in their assessment documentation.
