Details

Applications are open for Scholarship at Swansea University. Studies have found that paramedics and other emergency ambulance staff score higher than other professional groups on validated assessments of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This may be due to frequent exposure to traumatic events that have the potential to lead to mental health problems. Additionally,  The project aims to see if a program of Resilience Intervention Training (RIT) can protect emergency service personnel from the development of mental health problems and symptoms of traumatic stress.

Further, The first step in Scholarship at Swansea University will be to develop the Resilience Intervention Training based on extant intervention programs and develop the materials for the intervention.

Moreover, The project will be supervised by Professor Nicola Gray (Swansea University) and will be overseen by a Research Development Group that consists of Nigel Rees (Head of Research & Innovation, Welsh Ambulance Service), Professor Paul Bennett (Swansea University), Neil Hore (Programme Manager for the Paramedic Science course, Swansea University) and Professor Robert Snowden (Cardiff University).
