1 Faculty of Health Te Kura Hauora » Bachelor of Health Science (Paramedic)

2 Bachelor of Health Science (Paramedic) The Bachelor of Health Science (Paramedic) programme at Whitireia New Zealand (Whitireia) is designed to prepare students for practice as contemporary ambulance paramedics. Paramedics provide acute health care and emergency and urgent medical services to the community through a s pecialised body of professional knowledge, delivering care in variable environments. Through the use of clinical assessment, advanced medical procedures and treatment, they stabilise patients in clinically challenging environments, refer to primary and secondary care and provide on-going emergency medical care during transport. The programme is full-time and involves considerable study. Serious thought should be given before a student undertakes paid employment that will make it difficult to maintain sufficient study time, or to attend clinical experience. It is suggested that no more than ten hours per week are worked. Attendance at all classes, both theory and clinical, is a requirement for successful completion of the programme. The Bachelor of Health Science (Paramedic) Degree (BHSc [Paramedic]) is approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority under the provisions of the Education Act 1989, and Whitireia Community Polytechnic is accredited to offer this Programme. It is run in conjunction with Wellington Free Ambulance and Victoria University Melbourne are the external moderators. Graduates are eligible to apply for the Postgraduate Certificate in Specialty Care (Advanced Paramedic) at Whitireia and other postgraduate courses at universities in New Zealand and Australia. Why Choose Whitireia? The Faculty of Health has an excellent reputation for offering a friendly and supportive learning environment. We utilise a variety of teaching processes, which focus on discovery learning and active participation in workshops, lectures, tutorials and online activities. Supported clinical experiences which lead to a workready graduate. Whitireia has a vibrant student community that is rich in diversity. The Wikitoria Katene building, which opened in 2013 provides state-of-the-art simulated clinical learning environments for our nursing and paramedic students. These simulation suites give students access to the latest technology and a learning environment that is a point of difference between Whitireia and most other undergraduate providers. Student Support At Whitireia, we are committed to our students' success and therefore offer a range of services to meet the learning needs of individual students. These include the Poutama Learning Skills Centre where one-to-one and small group assistance, peer tutoring, workshops and study skills sessions on a variety of topics, and online material are available. To increase our students' chances of success, we provide support for our students in other ways such as financial advice, counselling, health services, childcare facilities, and a service for students who have a disability, illness, or health problems that may interfere with their studies.

3 Programme Summary Programme Length Three years full time Programme Dates Term 1: 15 February-15 April Term 2: Term 3: Term 4: 02 May-24 June 18 July-23 September 10 October-25 November Please note the July mid-semester break does not match the primary and secondary school holidays. Programme Fees Additional Costs The 2015 Year One fee was: $6, (NZ Citizens and Permanent Residents only) fees are not finalised yet but will be on the BHSc (Paramedic) page on the Whitireia website from August. Includes, but is not limited to, the following (all costs are approximate): Textbooks: $800 Stationery: $100 Uniform: $280 Stethoscope: $100 Health Screening: $250 CourseOutline Detailed course information (i.e. credit value, hours and aims) is available on the BHSc (Paramedic) page on the Whitireia website. Driver's Licence It is strongly recommended that the student holds a fu ll driver s licence before starting the BHSc (Paramedic) programme. A full driver s licence, held for a minimum of three years (without convictions) is a requirement of both Wellington Free Ambulance and St John before the student may be considered for either volunteer or permanent employment. If the student does not hold a full driver s licence at the beginning of the programme, this will not prevent the student from undertaking the paramedic programme, but may restrict their opportunity for employment with an ambulance service until such time that they have held a full licence for three years. If the student does not hold a full driver s licence, they must consider the implications of the start and finish times of their clinical placements in relation to the restrictions of their licence Information for Applicants: Bachelor of Health Science (Paramedic) Fees, programmes and dates are subject to change 2

4 Course Structure The BHSc Paramedic programme is delivered with a combination of theory classes, self-directed learning, practical sessions on campus, and clinical placements. In Years One and Two, students will spend approximately half of each semester on campus, and the other half dedicated to clinical placements this is arranged in a repetitive cycle of three weeks in class, then three weeks on placement, etc. There are variations to this pattern the actual classroom and clinical timetable is provided to the student at the beginning of each semester. In Year Three all courses are delivered online, with some block weeks spent on campus, and a greater amount of time spent on clinical placements. This requires the student to be particularly diligent and focussed in their studies, and to take more responsibility for their learning and time management. Year One Year One introduces new students to human anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, and paramedic practice. Utilising context based learning; students explore the structure and function of the ambulance industry; roles and responsibilities of the paramedic; legal and ethical issues, including the implications of te Tiriti o Waitangi on paramedic practice; and the assessment and treatment of medical and trauma patients to a beginning practitioner level. The time spent on campus is divided between classroom theory and practical sessions in our clinical labs, where hands-on skills are practiced and developed before implementation on clinical placements. Students will attend a variety of clinical placements, including; emergency ambulance, non-emergency ambulance, ambulance communications centre and rest homes. During these placements students are able to apply and develop the knowledge and skills from the classroom whilst under direct supervision. Year Three Year Two Year Two consolidates and builds on Year One, with more in-depth exploration of anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, and more invasive paramedic practice. The student will transition from task focussed technical skills to critical thinking in relation to patient care as well as continuing to develop skills in academic scholarship and research, and mentoring and supervision. In a similar structure to Year One, the students will spend time in the classroom, in the clinical labs, and attend clinical placements this year ranging from emergency ambulance, hospital emergency department, hospital operating theatre, delivery suite, mental health, and frontline police. The structure of Year Three is significantly different to the previous years. All courses in this year are delivered online, with some block weeks spent on campus. Whilst the courses are a mix of clinical and nonclinical courses (as in the previous years), there is a greater focus on clinical reasoning, teamwork and leadership, along with in depth exploration of legal, ethical and sociological issues, and further development of research in relation to paramedic practice. The amount of time spent on clinical placements is increased in Year Three, and is almost exclusively based in an emergency ambulance environment.

5 Theory Theory hours at Whitireia are usually 9.00am-4.00pm four days a week, and these sessions are divided between the various courses being studied concurrently. This time on campus is also divided between classroom learning and practical sessions in the clinical lab where hands-on skills are learnt and practiced. A variety of teaching processes are used in the programme, including lectures, tutorials, and self-directed learning packages online. The Whitireia BHSc (Paramedic) programme follows a context based learning philosophy this requires the student s commitment to completing required online learning packages before attending classroom sessions, where the focus will be on the application of the new knowledge. It is strongly recommended that students have a computer at home with internet access. Clinical Over the course of the programme, the student will complete 1040 hours of placements under supervision in a clinical setting. The theory learnt in the classroom, and the practical skills covered in the lab are able to be applied in the clinical setting under direct supervision of health care personnel. Whitireia delivers the BHSc (Paramedic) programme in partnership with Wellington Free Ambulance (WFA), and as such the required ambulance placements will be arranged for the student with WFA. Whitireia also has a close working relationship with St John Ambulance to ensure that the content of the programme meet the needs of both NZ ambulance service providers. Whitireia also has working partnerships with other clinical providers, including both the Hutt Valley and Capital & Coast District Health boards to allow the student to attend clinical placements within the hospital and primary health care environments. Due to the hours of work and location of placements throughout the greater Wellington region, it may be difficult to get public transport to attend clinical placements. The cost of transport to and from clinical placements is the student s responsibility. These placements will include a variety of shift start and finish times, and may include days, nights, weekends and public holidays.

6 Clinical Placements and On-Road Experiences Students are required to complete time in a work-based environment under the supervision of an appropriately qualified paramedic. Whitireia has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Wellington Free Ambulance Service that they will assist in the operational training of students. Whitireia also has a working relationship with local hospitals where students are able to complete further clinical sections of study. However the majority of clinical placements are under the supervision of senior paramedics at Wellington Free Ambulance. Students complete a portfolio of evidence which includes both clinical and non-clinical learning. This will form the basis of the graduate s professional practice portfolio. Quality of learning is identified by the completion of clinical logs, in which the student reviews patient care, records skills undertaken and details learning from the placement experience. Supervision feedback forms will be completed by the student s supervisor and will reflect on the student s abilities and progress during these placements. Clinical logs are reviewed by the Course Coordinator to ensure sufficient workload has been documented.
