Evaluation of Paramedic clinical simulation stress: is it good or bad?

This follow-up study aims to investigate if Paramedic clinical simulation promotes stress and at what level is it helpful or harmful. Further investigation by way of qualitative feedback may well hold the answer to the experience of Paramedic clinical simulation and if the experience was harmful of provided benefit within a learning context.

Paramedicine offers unlimited opportunities due to being a relatively new research environment. […]
