Yesterday, we released a paper calling for presumptive PTSD legislation for our ambos.

In our submission to the State Government, we call for an amendment to the Workers Compensation Act to make PTSD a presumptive illness for paramedics, shifting the burden of proof onto the employer or insurer. Some of our Ambulance members shared their own stories in the paper.

Read the paper here.
