Pedagogical objectives

This site offers material that is complementary to Guide de communication en soins préhospitaliers d'urgence, a textbook published by the CCDMD. The objective of this textbook is to :

  • Offer students in emergency care a bilingual lexicon for their field to remedy the fact that their concentration courses are available only in French or in English.

  • Enable them to master terminology specific to emergency care in both languages, which is essential if not vital in the exercise of the duties.

  • Offer students and teachers a work tool that is formatted to make it adaptable to various pedagogical activities whether it be by working in groups or individually.

  • Provide a guide that students can use after their studies and throughout their careers as paramedics, as opposed to the majority of scholarly textbooks (even if periodic revisions are needed).

  • Serve as a reference for continuing education and for immigrants wishing to pursue work in the field of emergency care.
