1300MEDICS operates a rolling recruitment process for staff. We employ a wide range of staff including ambulance and defence medics, emergency and intensive care nurses, and emergency doctors. We also employ university students currently studying tertiary paramedic courses. New recruits are required to undertake a series of mentored shifts before being authorised to practice independently. Our induction program also includes extensive clinical skills training and assessment as well as customer service and conflict resolution.
1300MEDICS operates a comprehensive and unmatched education and professional development program. Individual staff development is guided by a professional development plan which is created on recruitment and reviewed annually. Recruits undertake an extensive induction programme and complete mentored and supervised shifts until they are able to safely work independently. Advanced Life Support clinicians undertake a rigorous annual reaccreditation which is recorded and externally reviewed.
Part of the 1300MEDICS difference is our commitment to event- and venue- specific training. We conduct regular training on-site at major venues and in the lead up to major events to ensure staff are oriented to event-specific procedures and locations. Simulation based training is integrated into daily briefings at major events to ensure that all aspects of the medical response pathway work together for the best outcome. 1300MEDICS provides a stimulating training program throughout the year for all clinical staff.
We conduct an annual session at the Clinical Skills Development Service at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital with simulated patients and skill stations developing communication and clinical skills for staff at all levels. We recently ran a Trauma Skills Workshop for all clinical staff at the Queensland Ambulance Service’s Whyte Island training campus which included high fidelity simulation including confined space rescue, vehicle extrication, amputations, impalements, penetrating injuries and other cases.
