Incivility in EMS Research 

By Robbie MacCue

Here's an opportunity to support and contribute to a body of research that will lead to more evidence in the EMS industry.

Patricia Overman, is a paramedic and graduate student at Western Carolina University conducting a research project titled “The prevalence of workplace incivility in Emergency Medical Services and the effects on EMS providers.” The purpose of this study is to learn how often EMS providers feel they are exposed to workplace incivility, how incivility affects the overall mental health and morale of providers, as well as their job satisfaction and interpersonal relationships. 

If you are an EMS provider with a current certification, you are invited to participate in this research project. If you are under age 18 or not currently credentialed as an EMS provider, you do not meet the criteria for participation. Your information will remain completely confidential as explained in the consent form. The survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete and will close on July 15, 2021.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Thank you for your help!
