You are asked to complete a Research Paper in this course. A Research Paper is an opportunity for you to practice and improve your research and writing skills. Plus, it allows you to review the details that others have observed and researched in the industry. You choose one of two topics as the following:
1. You are an advisor board member for a local paramedic initial education program. You have been asked to develop a supporting paper for the program to seek national accreditation through the appropriate EMS Initial Education Accrediting Body, CoAEMSP. Using information you have learned throughout the term, develop a paper that supports the programs efforts. 2. You are tasked with developing a proposal to cover expenses associated with implementation of a service-based continuing education training department. Based on what you know regarding continuing education, you believe that seeking a licensed/credentialed EMS instructor and pursuing CECBEMS accreditation for your continuing education courses is the right approach. Develop a paper that expresses your rationale for this additional cost.
