The use of volunteer undergraduate students to support simulated training for peers is common in Paramedic Science. However, there are limited examples of engaging paramedic student-volunteers in research as compared to that reported in cognate disciplines such as Medicine and Nursing. This case report shares our experience with engaging a penultimate year paramedic student in evaluation research. This information we hope will start the dialogue on the epistemology and pedagogies for effective engagement of undergraduate paramedic students as future researchers.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
