Caring for the Paramedic Community
A resource for Canadian paramedic organizations to assess and promote workplace psychological health and safety
Protection and promotion of mental health is important in every workplace, but paramedic settings can be particularly challenging environments. Use this free online resource to identify key areas of strength and concern that influence the psychological health and safety in your paramedic organization.
There are two tools in this resource:
Psychosocial Survey of Paramedic Organizations (PSPO)
Organizational Review for Paramedic Organizations (ORPO)
The Organizational Review for Paramedic Organizations (ORPO) is designed to determine your paramedic service organization's current status and progress in creating and sustaining a psychologically healthy and safe workplace. The ORPO is completed by a key informant designated by the paramedic organization who is provided with the necessary time, support and access to information.
