In working with frontline paramedics, it has been Dr. MacPhee’s long-held belief that successful research in the field of paramedicine is the result of work that is done with paramedics, for paramedics. The integration of frontline paramedics into, and throughout, the research process is paramount if researchers are to produce work that effects positive and impactful changes within the paramedic profession. To this end, actively engaging paramedics in her research remains at the forefront of the work that she does.
