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 the February issue of the Journal of Paramedic Practice, Matt Dixon continues our Prescribing Paramedic Series with a look at pharmacokinetics in paramedic prescribing. In Research, Williams and colleagues examine mechanical versus manual chest compressions and patient survival in the emergency setting. Holland et al then discuss how to go beyond Medline and other major bibliographic databases to search the paramedic literature. In Clinical Practice, Master looks at understanding right ventricular myocardial infarction in prehospital care, while in education, Costello and Downs present a critical exploration of a meaningful patient interaction to discuss student paramedic decision-making. Rachel Hodgett also continues on our new series on Paramedic Roles with a day in the life of a prison paramedic.
