Other features examine the public safety physical, how COVID helped revive a community health paramedic program, patient refusals, and losing your medical director, while the CE article concludes our two-part look at street drugs. Columns include Resident Eagle, Journal Watch, the Edge, Vendor Viewpoint, and the new Diversity in EMS.
