SPHPM’s Summer Vacation Scholarship student co-authors her first publication

SPHPM’s 2012/13 Summer Vacation Scholarship student, Stephanie Di Palma has co-authored a publication with DEPM’s Dr Janet Bray, Dr Lahn Straney and Professor Judith Finn, which has just been accepted by the top ranking emergency medicine journal,  Resuscitation.

The paper, titled “Trends in the incidence of presumed cardiac out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Perth, Western Australia, 1997-2010”, investigates the development of out of hospital cardiac arrests in Perth.

In Australia the out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) attended by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) was the highest of any continent, with reported rates varying between cities. The aim of this study was to investigate trends in the incidence of presumed cardiac OHCA in metropolitan Perth (Western Australia) between 1997 to 2010.

Stephanie received a Certificate of Excellence for her outstanding presentation and research during the 2012/13 Summer Vacation Scholarship Program. This program runs over the University's summer holiday period and is open to students studying in Bachelor of Health Science, Biomedical Science and Medicine. The primary objective of SPHPM Summer Vacation Scholarship Program is to support the education of promising tertiary students by providing them with a means to engage and gain experience in research during the University summer vacation period.

Congratulations to Stephanie on this great achievement!
