CLAHRC Fellow 2017
Larissa Prothero is a Research Paramedic for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust. Over the last 7 years she has established herself as an experienced pre-hospital emergency research clinician. She has a longstanding interest in sepsis and has been involved in various pre-hospital care improvement initiatives, including a sepsis recognition and management programme, hyperglycaemia and sepsis care and pre-hospital neutropenic sepsis education. During the CLAHRC fellowship Larissa will be exploring the contributions of pre-hospital emergency care systems, and their inter-relationships in ambulance sepsis recognition, in order to develop a sepsis risk assessment tool for ambulance services.
