Keep an eye on this blog to find out what’s NEW in 2023! We have some exciting publications in the pipeline, as well as a fresh new app, called ParaFolio. Read on to find out more about our recently developed paramedic resources…
“It was an opportunity to give current paramedics in primary care, something that we never had when we moved into primary care five years ago… that was really important to us because transitioning from an ambulance service into a primary care environment is quite difficult.” – Co-editor, Georgette Eaton.
This book was written and edited by over 20 clinicians, each with expertise in the chapter they wrote. It’s been edited by paramedics working in primary care, for paramedics working in primary care.
Whether you study or work in primary care in the north of Scotland, Northern Ireland, across England and in the mountains and valleys of Wales – this book has something for every paramedic of every clinical grade. Similarly, if you’re studying to become an enhanced-scope practitioner (such as Specialist Paramedics, Advanced Paramedics and Consultant Paramedics), you will also find this book to be an essential guide for your practice.
“I genuinely couldn’t put it down. There is so much information packed into this book that you really do need to know as a paramedic. If I could have collected every penny that dropped while reading, I would have been considerably richer by the end!” – Vincent Romano, Consultant Paramedic – Education, in the Journal of Paramedic Practice
The third edition of Law and Ethics for Paramedics is just around the corner! This book has been expanded with brand new content on applied ethics, the role of the coroner’s court in England and Wales, and patients’ refusal of blood products. It also includes the most up-to-date case law, full colour diagrams, case studies, and is aligned to the Health and Care Professions Council’s standards of proficiency for paramedics.
Law and Ethics for Paramedics (Third Edition) will give you the confidence you need to deliver safe and professional patient care in the context of your professional registration!
