Associate Ambulance Practitioner
The purpose of the Level 4 Diploma for Associate Ambulance Practitioners is to confirm the learner’s competence in the skills and knowledge you will gain from completing this qualification.
The Associate Ambulance Practitioner (AAP) works as part of the wider Emergency & Urgent Care setting, having direct contact with service users or others, providing high quality and compassionate care. Day to day duties and tasks for an AAP would involve working as part of an ambulance crew responding to emergency (999) & urgent calls providing emergency and urgent assistance, driving safely and progressively at high speed. The AAP will assess, treat and manage service users at the scene or assist with non-conveyance or onward referral if appropriate, reducing the need for hospital admission. Other tasks involve working closely with other emergency services and the wider NHS. Tasks of an AAP will include evaluating different approaches to solving problems, communicating those results accurately and reliably, with structured and coherent arguments. After successful completion, the AAP will be accountable for their own actions, operating within their own scope of practice. They will work alongside professional colleagues of higher or lower grades.
