Introduction

I am presenting a paper on this topic at this year's Paramedicine Australasia International Conference in Auckland during November.
Please share your experiences and opinions regarding this sensitive and crucial topic. The findings will be used to make recommendations to  Emergency Care Training Providers who teach First Aid to Outdoor Instructors like yourself.
 
As a retired medical doctor with a special interest in Outdoor First Aid, this is a personal academic project with no links or support from  any commercial organisation.

Please help me make your opinions heard and experiences count!

This questionnaire will only take about 10 minutes to fill in.

The purpose of the survey is to understand:  your individual experience of death, your first aid training, as well as your professional and personal support networks.  This information will be collated anonymously and used to inform my presentation. 
 
Trigger warning: If you have dealt with deaths this might bring back traumatic memories.

Any correspondence will remain totally confidential and be kept anonymous for the project.
