Book Review


This text initially captures your attention given the all-encompassing title, but how much of the content is actually devoted to paramedic practice? That in itself is difficult to define given the ever-increasing scope of practice of those working within our profession. The editor is a nurse by profession and only two of the contributors are HCPC-registered paramedics. Not so much a criticism but a curious balance, as ‘paramedic’ is the only clinical role given specific mention in the title.
