As paramedics are required to provide care to an aging population with multidimensional and complex issues, educators need to prepare students to recognize, assess, and manage a broad range of psychosocial care and support issues beyond somatic conditions. This study compared the effectiveness of an educational program related to older people verses no intervention on paramedic student attitudes, knowledge, and behavior with older patients.
