Please describe the case in detail

In particular please consider (a)Objectives of the intervention; (b) Tools used to achieve the project goals; (c) Methodologies applied;

The rate of occupational injuries among paramedics and other emergency medical professionals is eight times higher than the national average for all workers and twice as high as the rate for police officers; it seems there is no occupational group with a higher injury or fatality rate than paramedics and medical professionals in emergency medicine. Medical College therefore decided to create a new subject for students of Paramedic Program - Prevention of Violence.

What resources are required for the case?

Consider human resources, financial resources, infrastructure, in-kind resources and any other type required.

- Revision of the curriculum of the Parademic Study Program
- Preparing a new subject for Rescuers
- Submission of accreditation - confirmation
- Visiting foreign countries with similar experiences / conferences
- Trained worker in the prevention of violence
- Implementation of the subject into the study program
- Evaluation of the subject

What are the enabling factors making this case successful?

Consider institutional support, environmental/social/political factors, etc.

- Preparation for the prevention of violence is key
- It is important to perform a repeated training - there is time to prepare at school
- Measuring the impact of students who complete the training

Why do you consider this case to be good/best practice?

Please consider that a best practice must (a) have a clearly defined objective to increase the connection with the World of Work, (b) address the target groups of the project, (c) be replicable and sustainable, (d) have clearly demonstrated evidence of effectiveness in increasing the connection with the World of Work

Violence towards the prehospital emergency professionals is often neglected. There is no complete understanding of the incidence of violence in the Czech Republic or recommendations for specific professional communities in problems of violence or how to solve the problem of violence in prehospital emergency medicine. Prehospital and emergency medical professionals are the first ones who respond to urgent needs of people. High prevalence of violence has been reported in a few studies, indicating the extent of the problem. It also seems that inappropriate patient behaviour may be caused by unprofessional behaviour of prehospital emergency professionals. Although, some safety measures are designed to reduce violence in hospital emergency departments, only few studies have focused on pre-hospital emergency settings, with its principally unpredictable and unstructured environment. Medical College is aiming to prepare its students for these situations.
