Royal Roads Master of Arts in Learning and Technology graduate Sean Hackett was interviewed by the Goldstream Gazette about his research on the benefits of mindfulness training for paramedics, research inspired by his son who has a heart condition.

Here is an excerpt:

“If my research is able to inspire paramedics to just be aware of their stress triggers and mitigate them then hopefully the next time my son needs a paramedic they’ll be able to respond under duress”

Hackett’s research has had an impact on training for paramedics in Ontario and has received attention from The Ontario Medical Advisory Committee.
