PMSC13001 - Mental health for Paramedics and Other Health Professionals
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for PMSC13001 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

Within your role as a Paramedic or other health care professional you will encounter consumers experiencing many differing forms of mental health challenge which affect their presentation and recovery. During this unit you will develop communication skills (including the ability to actively listen to consumer and family story), recognise alterations in mental health and gain knowledge of therapeutic options and referral pathways available to assist consumers. As mental health challenges are over represented in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, and a number of other communities in Australia you will also examine cultural aspects affecting individual recovery. This unit also introduces the contemporary concepts of lived experience and self-care within your challenging profession.

2 On-campus Activity

Assessment Title On-campus Activity
Task Description

Introduction

The aim of the three day residential school is for you to put into practice the lessons learned on placement/s and in Assessment 1 (your reflective case review) in a safe but challenging environment.
Throughout the first two days of residential school you will practice Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) (or practical scenarios as they are sometimes known) and receive feedback from Qualified Paramedics. During this time you will be provided with feedback regarding how you can improve or hone your practical skills in this subject area.
The third day of residential is where (at scheduled times) you complete your on-campus assessments including two long cases and a documentation exercise.
Aim of the Assessment

The purpose of this assessment is to
• Examine your questioning techniques in relation to patients experiencing mental health challenges.
• Assess your ability to incorporate the Mental State Examination into your overall systematic approach.
• Gauge your ability to communicate with patients experiencing varying forms of mental health challenge in a caring and professional manner.
• Evaluate your ability to deliver a range of therapeutic options in a simulated but challenging environment. This will not only include the ability to deliver clinical care for situations such overdoses of varying types, but also focus on the ability to de-escalate highly emotive consumers experiencing mental health challenges.


In effect, this is you developing work ready practical skills and knowledge to prepare you for the challenging clinical environments you will face on graduation.


This assessment is made up of two components:
1. 2 x Long cases
2. 1 x Documentation exercise

Assessment 1. 2 x Long cases

Along with a partner you will have 20 minutes to communicate with, assess and manage a patient suffering a mental health challenge commonly seen in the field.
The primary officer will be the only one being assessed and you will be allocated 20 minutes to complete the case. During the next 10 minutes you will be expected to clean up the assessment scene and assist with restocking as you would be in the workplace.


There will be a break between doing your long cases.


Duration of Assessment: 20 minutes + 10 minutes of clean up and restocking.
Weighting: 35% of Course Total (this will be an average of marks from your two OSCEs).

Documentation exerciseFollowing the first long case you will be require to document a Mental State Examination on the person you have treated. This is NOT necessarily an Emergency Examination Order or Assessment Order but rather just the mental State Examination using the guide from your moodle site.


You will be provided with a form in either a paper format or on an electronic device to complete. Many services still utilise paper based patient records.

Time frame to complete: 30 minutes.
Weighting: 15% of Course Total


The above components of the On-campus Assessment tasks are completed at designated times during your residential school. Assessors will submit results electronically and these will be posted via your Moodle site.
**The On-campus assessment task must be completed at the dates and times allocated during the residential school: in the absence of an approved extension there will be no opportunity to complete the assessment at a later date, and there will be no opportunity to apply a 5% per day late penalty.
**The Clinical Practicum Attendance Procedure is applicable for this assessment item. Students should view this prior to attending residential school (copy included within your Moodle site).

3 Presentation and Written Assessment

Assessment Title Presentation and Written Assessment
Task Description

Introduction

Assessment three is focused on two crucial areas within the mental health arena, self-care and minimisation of the effects of the job on Paramedics and cultural communication aspects when assisting people who identify as Indigenous.
Your Assessment task is in two parts:
1. Development of a poster AND
2. Answering a cultural communication question within a written assignment


Task 1 Poster (can be developed as a group or individually)
Introduction

The incidence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Secondary Trauma in Paramedics and other emergency services has in recent times become the focus of a number of studies (people are talking). This said while many Australian and International Ambulance Services have peer support programs in place for staff experiencing these mental health challenges, there hasn’t been the same degree of focus on preventative and awareness programs for this same group.
In all things medical, prevention is better than cure.


Details
For task 1 you are required to prepare a poster that can be used as a comprehensive learning resource for Paramedics and Managers/Supervisors in an Ambulance Service. The focus of the poster is:
• The effects of PTSD and secondary trauma.
• How to minimise the effects of PTSD and secondary trauma.
• Therapeutic options to assist the person experiencing PTSD and secondary trauma.


The poster should include the following information on both conditions.
• Introduction
• Definitions
• Epidemiology
• Aetiology
• Symptomology
• Methods for early detection including self-care detecting methods such as stress scales.
• Therapeutic options aimed at assisting the person. This should be backed up with references wherever possible.
• Reference list.

Each section should be succinct and a graphic/s should be incorporated into the poster to increase visual appeal.

Task 2 Written Assessment (Individual assessment)

Section 1


Dispatch Details: Called by the Queensland Police Service (QPS) to a 19 year old aboriginal male who is jumping at shadows and not ‘talking normally’. QPS are on scene.
Time of Day: 2000 hours (Summer time in the tropics).
Time to Hospital: 15 mins
Time to Scene: 10 mins
CCP back up: 15 minutes from time of call.
Other Ambulance back up: Nil


On arrival at scene

Windscreen survey: Shows a small house on a suburban street. The yard is full of people with around 60 to 70 outside the house, on the street and generally milling around.

Scene detail: There are 10 Aboriginal teens in a small corner of the backyard with the patient. There is also a small group of older people sitting on the patio out of the way of the main groups.
The girlfriend of the patient leads you to the male who is literally jumping at shadows.

General Appearance: On approaching, you notice the patient (Cedric Grey) is shirtless has very well defined musculature and scaring on his upper torso indicating he has been through an cultural ritual of becoming a man. He is confused about day, time and events but recognises his family on scene. As you get nearer to the patient you see him lunge at one of the Police Officers hugging him and he refuses to let go. Cedric is non-violent but appears to be suffering auditory and visual hallucinations about someone wanting to hurt him.

Presenting History: Patient’s girlfriend informs you he is from the remote Indigenous community of Aurukun (see map below, Aurukun lands are marked in red) and has schizophrenia. He travelled to Cairns for a family funeral two weeks ago and forgot his medications. The funeral for his 20 year old Cousin Brother (not a typo, this is an Indigenous relative or cousin on the mothers side in Caucasian terms) was earlier in the day and all of the extended family gathered at the family home in the suburbs.
Cedric has not consumed any alcohol or drugs during his stay.

**This assessment is based on a real case attended by Paramedics. Details have been altered so no person can be identified.

Question 1

Given what has been discussed within your resources for ‘Mental State Assessment in a Culturally Diverse Society’ and your prescribed text, how would you manage this situation in a culturally sensitive manner?

Note: This question is not about the clinical situation or even about the Mental State Assessment it’s about communication. Communication underpins your ability to identify a patient’s mental health condition (if one is there) and determine an effective treatment pathway.

There is an obvious need for this patient to attend hospital but what would you say and do to get him there?
• Think about people you could use to potentially convince the patient to attend hospital.
• Think about statements you would make and to whom (on scene) to assist you to get this patient into the vehicle and accept treatment.


Your task is to document your communication strategy for this situation. It’s important to note this is about you and your interaction not a prescriptive response.
What works for a solidly built, bald, middle aged Paramedic may not work for a petite 21 year old female or indeed a 30 year old male built the same way with ink and dreadlocks.
Document in detail who you would target to assist you and what you would say to them to get them to assist you.
