​P.A.R.T.Y. Program presenters

Presenters for the Program come from a broad range of clinical specialties including:

  • Emergency Service Workers
  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Allied Health professionals
  • Researchers

All of our clinical presenters volunteer their time in the hope of reducing the death and disability associated with trauma in youth.

Depending on availability, the Program also features specially consented patients and their families in the acute phases of treatment for trauma injuries in the Intensive Care and Trauma Units of the hospital. These patients and/or their families speak to the students of the choices they or others made and the life changing consequences resulting from these choices. They answer questions students may have and form a very powerful part of the Program.

The Program is also honoured to have presenters from the Paraplegic Benefit Fund. The Paraplegic Benefit Fund represents trauma survivors who have sustained a spinal cord injury, and talk to the students about their experience of life post trauma as part of the Program.

P.A.R.T.Y. Program volunteers

P.A.R.T.Y. Program volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds but have two main things in common - they all wish to contribute to their community by volunteering their time, and they all enjoy working with young people and wish to make a difference in their lives. They have been specially selected and trained to assist the P.A.R.T.Y. Program team.

Their role is to escort the students who participate in the Program around the hospital and to assist to supervise, support and encourage them in their experience of trauma. The P.A.R.T.Y. team greatly appreciate their volunteer service and commitment to the Program and the young people who attend it.
