The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s BerbeeWalsh Department of Emergency Medicine is seeking community paramedics to participate in a qualitative research study: Factors Affecting Role Transition from Acute to Community-Based Paramedicine.
The purpose of this study is to better understand the factors that influence a paramedic’s decision to transition from an acute EMS role to a community-based one, as well as overall perceptions about the field.
Eligible participants will be asked to partake in an interview via web-based video conferencing platforms licensed by UW-Madison. The interview is expected to take approximately 60 minutes. There is no compensation for this research study.
To participate in this study, you need to be:
• ≥ 18 years old
• English Speaking
• Currently working as a community paramedic (primary role)
• Must work in any U.S. state or territory, excluding Wisconsin
