This thesis examines the role of ambulance services and paramedics in responding to intimate partner violence (IPV) and IPV patients. This includes exploring how Australian paramedics and ambulance services should be responding to IPV, examining the current preparedness of Australian paramedics and paramedic students to respond to IPV patients, and examining the educational requirements of paramedics. This thesis will represent the first attempt to comprehensively examine IPV from a prehospital context, and will provide unique evidence which can be used to inform the practice of paramedics in Australia and potentially internationally.
