We’re super excited to bring you the first major announcement of the year – keep reading to find out the latest developments at EWM.
2016 is shaping up to be a great year and while we can’t give away too much just now, there are more big announcements on the way.
Supporting medical professionals
We’ve previously shared blogs discussing the issue of PTSD in Paramedics / EMTs in the hope that discussion can improve awareness and lead to greater support. Earlier this week we shared an article from the Guardian recounting one doctor’s experience with depression and feelings of suicide.
The reaction to this issue has been huge and we’ve since been approached by a number of people who have wanted to privately share their experiences with us.
If anyone has a story to share, has written a blog or simply knows of great support services available, please get in touch and we’d be delighted to use our many platforms to spread awareness to bring about better care for those who dedicate their lives to helping others.
We know from experience that sometimes our emails don’t reach you and end up in junk mailboxes, to solve this problem simply save ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ to your email address book.
If you’re booked on to a course or have sent in an enquiry and don’t seem to have heard from us, please drop us an email or give us a ring…we’re always keen to hear from you!
