In this episode of the pre-hospital care podcast, we welcome Mark Faulkner, an advanced paramedic practitioner, to unpack the often daunting legal world that paramedics are exposed to. Although appearing in a coroner’s court can seem very adversarial, we learn that more than anything, it is an attempt on the coroner’s part to increase transparency and provide clarity to the deceased’s family.
