Order Description
First all the essay should be about paramedic and how can my job play role with the essay.
Choose one key concept from module 3, weeks 9-12 (risk, emotional labour, cultural safety, or identity).
Intended audience: Future employers, professional supervisors, colleagues
Brief: This written assignment is intended as a reflective practice statement that you might be required to provide in a workplace situation. Imagine you are applying for a job in a health related profession. The essential criteria for the job include appropriate knowledge of, and commitment to, improving the wellbeing of both staff and clients and experience of reflective practice. Your job application requires you to describe a key concept that you have learnt about and that will impact your practice. You will need to explain the concept and how it relates to the future role, then reflect on how you collaborated with peers to develop group understanding of the concept.
Scope: The reflection should include the following aspects:
1. Description
• Briefly describe one key concept relating to health professional practice from weeks 9-12 (eg, risk, emotional labour, cultural safety, identity).
• Describe how your Reading Group worked together to develop a shared understanding of the concept.
2. Interpretation
• Reflect on your understanding of the concept, and how you might explain to your peers its value for health professionals.
• Reflect on the process of engaging in the Reading Group – explain the most challenging, interesting and positive aspects of the process.
3. Outcome

• Explain how you think the chosen concept will influence your future professional practice.
• Mention here what steps you would like (or need) to take to further develop your knowledge and commitment to improving the wellbeing of both future colleagues and clients.
