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."

With articles in every pillar of advanced practice, the current issue of the Journal of Paramedic Practice is one you won’t want to miss. In education, McKenzie et al shed light on a moving, handling and extraction simulation for paramedic students in a soft play area. Meanwhile in research, Henderson et al examine the competence of UK paramedics in performing a standard set of paramedic skills. In leadership and management, Thompson explores the potential of virtual reality for use in training hazardous area response teams for mass casualty triage; while in clinical practice, Carroll and Brooke outline prehospital end-tidal carbon dioxide measurement. With World Mental Health Day taking place on 10th October 2023, editor, Aysha Mendes, also delves into the importance of accepting ourselves, our human nature and the range of human emotion that we’re designed to experience and express. For all of this and more, look out for our October issue.
