Paramedics Australasia make available independent participation in surveys that inform research. However, PA neither endorses the content of surveys or requires that members participate. Members can do so if they are interested and feel they would like to contribute to the research topic. Although PA take no responsibility for surveys or for any negative impact participating in a survey may have on a participant’s health, we encourage paramedics who may be concerned or affected to seek assistance. Please visit our paramedic wellbeing page for resources and services.
