Implications for clinical practice is supported by chapters of professional practice, clinical skills, research, evidence-based practice, and legal, ethical and cultural issues.

        I have been searching for an australian written paramedic text book for years and finally they've written one, it has alot of information needed for on road and hospital based stuff aswell, awesome, I hope they write another one just for paramedics for signs and symptoms and treatment methods for all the things they face.
        Excellent keep up the good work.

        Comments about Emergency and Trauma Care:

        For every presenting problem, there is a Description - Diagnosis - Management, which is clear & easy to understand.

        It's written for Australian & New Zealand health providers, so it uses names/terms that are familiar.

        Am a Trainee Paramedic & I've found it to be a concise reference that I wish I had bought at the start of my course.
