Riding third : exploring the role of social work in ambulance work Campbell, Hilary
The research explains whether the creation of a new social work role would benefit situations in ambulance work, what this role would look like, and provides recommendations for the education of this position. An ethnographic study included semi-structured interviews, observations, and a collection of vignettes, with data collected over 300 hours while riding on ambulances in various locations. Data collected suggests that a social work role would provide needed psychosocial care during ambulance calls and would possess unique qualities and challenges from other traditional social work roles.
