Abstract

The profession of paramedicine is rapidly expanding and primary research relating to prehospital interventions is exploding worldwide. This new book provides, for the first time, a meaningful and easy to understand guide to research specifically tailored for paramedics.

Written by experts in research, medicine and paramedicine, Introducing, Designing and Conducting Research for Paramedics introduces the reader to the concepts of research through real-life examples. The structure follows a logical sequence from an overview of the research process to how to generate, consume and implement evidence.

This book will be a valuable resource for paramedics and prehospital clinicians at any level, worldwide, who wish to contribute to the rapidly emerging body of evidence on paramedicine and understand how they can make use of this in their practice.
