Violence in Paramedicine Research Group

Welcome, and thank you for visiting

The Violence in Paramedicine Research Group is a collaboration between Peel Regional Paramedic Services and the University of Windsor. Together with a growing list of industry and community partners, we are committed to developing evidence-informed policy that:

  1. Mitigates the risk of violence against paramedics

  2. Supports paramedics who have been affected

  3. Strengthens paramedic and community safety at emergency calls with a high risk of violence

Led by Dr. Justin Mausz and Dr. Elizabeth Donnelly, we undertake robust, translational research on the prevalence of violence against paramedics, its risk factors and the health consequences for paramedics.
