FG launches syl­labus for Paramedics

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Judd Leonard Okafor

A new cur­ricu­lum for para­medic tech­nol­ogy pro­vides for Paramedics to un­dergo five years stud­ies for the award of a na­tional di­ploma. It will qual­ify them to work in emer­gency med­i­cal ser­vices.

The di­ploma in para­medic tech­nol­ogy is the first at­tempt to stan­dard­ize the work of paramedics who work with vic­tims of trauma-a ma­jor con­cern where road-traf­fic in­jury is a leading cause of death and dis­abil­i­ties, said Health Min­is­ter Onye­buchi Chukwu.
