Paramedic Principles and Practice in the UK is a key textbook designed to support paramedicine students in this country throughout their studies.

The volume takes a practical approach, with case histories covering a broad range of clinical presentations and treatments, all incorporating a patient-centric perspective that acknowledges the longer patient journey.

This must-have textbook will not only arm readers with technical knowledge and expertise, but also with the non-technical principles of the profession, developing future paramedics who are able to provide a safe and effective management plan in the out-of-hospital environment.
