Abstract

This book on first inspection appears to be another book aimed at the clinical theories associated with paramedical practice and education with a cover picture of three students performing a scenario on a manikin. However it is anything but, rather it is an examination of the development of the ambulance culture, the direction of the profession and issues that pertain to the industry and how this affects paramedics and their practice in an Australian context.
