EMS World January 2006

EMS World Magazine has been published continuously since 1972. Informative and balanced editorial content make EMS World Magazine the most authoritative source in the world for clinical and educational material designed to improve the delivery of prehospital emergency medical care. It is written, edited, illustrated and formatted to appeal to the full spectrum of EMS professionals: Paramedics, EMTs, administrators and instructors working in private and public services.

Perhaps you have heard of it: a not-so-secret conference where the who’s who of EMS assemble once each year.
It’s one thing to lead and another to find that people actually follow you.
