You develop your understanding of the strategic challenges faced, the role of emerging technology and practices to meet the demands as well as developing research skills to add to the evidence base of pre-hospital care. You enhance your research skills, improving your knowledge of evidence based practice as well as how research projects are designed; this culminates in undertaking your own research dissertation.
