Dear colleagues & ICoP members,

Professor Brian Maguire of the Central Queensland University, School of Medical and Applied Sciences, is conducting important research into violence against ambulance personnel, and is seeking responses to a multi-university, international research survey. Violence against ambulance personnel is a growing problem.

Your input is needed on a multi-university, international research survey to examine violence against ambulance personnel. All ambulance personnel are encouraged to participate. The purpose of the survey is to obtain the information needed for the design of interventions (including training programs, policies and procedures) to reduce and prevent violence against ambulance personnel around the world.

If you'd like, you can visit the survey here: It will take about 15-20 minutes of your time. We hope you will support these efforts to improve the safety of ambulance personnel worldwide. As a token of appreciation for your time, all participants who chose to participate will be entered in to a drawing for iPads.

Please join us in supporting Prof. Maguire's research efforts.  Please share the link to the survey as widely as possible and encourage your students, employees, and coworkers to complete it.
