Congratulations to PhD student Alex Cardenas who won second place at the prestigious Australian and New Zealand CAA Awards for his PhD study.  The Membership of the CAA includes the principal providers of ambulance services in every State and Territory in Australia and in New Zealand and the annual awards for excellence represent the highest achievement in Paramedicine from the CAA. Alex's PhD designed and tested two brand new online cardiac arrest simulators and tested them on a sample of over 1,100 paramedics. This study demonstrated the potential of online simulation to train and assess clinical decision making and the significant difference in clinical decision making across paramedics of different age backgrounds, genders, educational attainment and geographical location. Congratulations to Alex on such a great outcome.
