Emergency and Trauma Care for nurses and paramedics is a highly respected emergency care text for nursing and paramedicine students and clinicians in Australia and New Zealand.

The text spans prehospital and hospital care, enabling students to understand the patient journey and equipping them for their role in a multidisciplinary team. Coverage includes assessment, triage and management of trauma, physiology of emergency care, and the recognition and management of specific body system emergencies, as well as the fundamentals of emergency care such as quality and safety, ethics, leadership, research and patient education.
