I’d like the impressions of professionals here.
CFRs, including me, believe we give a service to patients and therefore to our professional colleagues. I’d really like the (HONEST) opinions of ambulance professionals of their experiences with Community First Responders.
Do we do a reasonable job (considering our training level)? Are we of assistance to solo paramedics? Should we be trained in more – or fewer – techniques? If more, what should those be? Would you like to see us trained in other techniques than we are already?
I’d like to see CFRs trained to use Entonox and to be supplied with it. What do you think?
Your opinions would be really useful.
From a personal point of view, I’d like to see CFRs trained in Entonox. I’m fed up with not being able to give pain relief when the ambulance or CP are delayed becaues they’re already on a job.
What do you think?
