EMS World November 2018

EMS World November 2018

The November issue has a theme of patient and provider safety. The cover story examines the ongoing problem of sexual harassment in the emergency services, while other features look at safe patient lifting and movement and the safety of community paramedics. We also conclude the story of EMS World Expo keynote speaker Anne Montera. Columns include EMS Around the World, Promoting Innovation in EMS, and the Trip Report; this issue also brings Product Applications From the Field.
