Journal of Paramedic Practice (JPP) is the only monthly peer-reviewed journal dedicated to professional development and best practice in emergency care. It provides paramedics with evidence-based, clinical and practical information, so that they can enhance their knowledge in important areas of practice, and ultimately become more confident and capable emergency professionals.
The editor says:
"Every issue of JPP includes a mix of clinical articles and professional guidance, to deliver practical and accessible support for paramedics who want to improve their skills in practice. The journal is designed with readers' continuing professional development in mind, as we are committed to providing paramedics with the tools and information they need to reach their full potential."
Editor, Journal of Paramedic Practice
In our first issue of 2021, the Journal of Paramedic Practice launches a new monthly series on paramedic prescribing. Consultant editor, Ian Peate, introduces the series, and its first instalment on evidence-based prescribing is presented by Adam Bedson. In a related literature review, Pete Best explores whether paramedic prescribing practice looks as was expected now that it has actually been implemented. Also in this issue, Adam Law aims to determine through his literature review whether ascorbic acid should be a primary therapy given in the prehospital setting to patients with sepsis. Meanwhile, Brown and Quinn investigate the validity, feasibility and safety of focused cardiac ultrasound in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. In another new short monthly series examining diverse paramedic roles, Suki Kaur shares her experience as a locum paramedic and emergency care practitioner.
