Hosted by WeParamedics using #WePMDs

This chat is guest hosted by @ParamedicsUK

#WePMDs is back!!!

A summer of renewal and audit is upon the paramedic profession in 2017 and so as part of the resuscitation of @WeParamedics we are going to hold our first tweet chat about this subject in the virtual @WePararmedics crew room. This chat will look at paramedic registration and CPD requirements including the HCPC audit process. The hosts of the chat between them have over 50 years’ experience of working in and with Ambulance services. The chat will be supported by the College of Paramedics who have tweeters with expertise in this area and we are looking forward to others sharing their knowledge, opinion and experiences.

The tweetchat will focus on 2 main areas for discussion

  1. The UK Paramedic has been a registered professional since 2000 initially through the Council for Professions Supplementary to Medicine and now the Health and Care Professions Council

  2. Following the renewal of a paramedic’s registration the HCPC selects 2.5% of the profession for a CPD audit.

@PAQld

ParamedicsAustralasia is the leading member organisation representing a significant number of the 13,000 strong Australasian paramedic workforce. Agreement was made on 6 November 2016 at a Health Ministers Council of Australian Governments(COAG) meeting attended by all state and territory health ministers to progress paramedics towards national registration and inclusion in the NationalRegistration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS). Paramedics Australasia has been advocating for national registration for the paramedic profession over many years and has been driven by the goal of safe and effective out-of-hospital care for the Australian public.

https://www.paramedics.org/national-paramedic-registration/

Australiaand New Zealand College of Paramedicine

The Collegestarted life in 1973 as the Institute of Ambulance Officers which later becamethe Australian College of Ambulance Professionals (NSW Branch). In 2012 theybecame the Australian and New Zealand College of Paramedicine, a name whichbetter reflects who they represent and what the College does. As far as theCollege is concerned, the best news in the COAG communique was that since allMinisters agreed that paramedics will be registered in all jurisdictions, thatan ‘opt-in’ mechanism would not be required. This is a significant developmentmaking the NRAS truly national, and not just covering States that opted in tothe scheme.
