The term 'pre-hospital emergency medicine'
(PHEM) covers a wide range of medical conditions
from minor illness and injury to life-threatening
emergencies. Pre-hospital interventions therefore
also range from simple first aid to advanced
emergency care. Clinical providers may be first
responders, technicians, paramedics, nurses and
doctors. All of this activity may take place in
urban, rural or remote settings (Intercollegiate
Board for Training in Pre-Hospital Emergency
Medicine, 2015).
