Amanda has 17 years’ experience teaching in higher education institutes, with many years of emergency care experience. She contributes to the Forum for Higher Education for Paramedics and the Council of Deans Paramedic Advisory group. She is an Honorary Fellow of the College of Paramedics and is extremely proud of the literary contribution she and her colleagues have made to the education of paramedics in the UK. She has extensive knowledge and experience in curriculum design and validation processes and is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. As a lecturer, she finds inspiration and enjoyment from teaching and endeavours to make students’ learning as real and as fun as possible. She has published (alone and with colleagues) four paramedic texts, two of which are bestsellers and have resulted in further editions being written. She is committed to supporting early career writers to have the opportunity to develop their skills and experience in the publishing arena. She has been educated about ‘prescribing’ from her fellow editors during this process and has enjoyed learning much more about this fascinating area of practice.
