We have collected a number of documents for participating organisations, to help explain what PARAMEDIC2 is trying to achieve and how the trial is being carried out.
Posters and leaflets:
We have developed posters and leaflets to provide more information to the public. If you would like to display a poster in your place of work, please download and print one here. Alternatively you can contact us and we will send you printed posters and leaflets
Information for patients:
A research paramedic will inform people if they have been involved in the study when the initial emergency has passed. This will usually be on the hospital ward. The paramedic will provide an information sheet explains the purpose of the trial, informs patients of their options, and seeks their consent for further participation.
Training materials for Ambulance Service Staff:
These materials have been created to assist in the training of staff at participating sites.
