An essential for Paramedic Practice students!,
This review is from: Assessment Skills for Paramedics (Paperback)
If you are studying Paramedic Practice buy this book, it's based on UK practice, it's a reasonable price and it's the only assessment specific book to Paramedics.
It is wonderful to find a book that is specific to Paramedic Practice- and written by Paramedics, not just written by other HCP's on what they think Paramedics should probably be doing!
The chapters are laid out clearly and logically and easy to understand, after all we aren't medical students.
Probably the most valuable book that I have, covering all areas needed for OSCE's and also drawing on social and legal considerations.
This is not an A&P book, if you want an in depth anatomy book then you will need to invest in a more expensive and intimidating A&P specific text. However if you would like a quick reference guide on how to carry out physical assessments on your patients, look nowhere else (in part because their aren't any, but also because it's brilliant!)
Suitable for the BSc course from years 1-3 this book will be a keeper the whole way through the course and I'm sure will be well thumbed!
If I could ask anything more from the book, it would be that there was an additional (durable) pocket guide as a learning tool to take out in practice that more concisely outlined the different assessments.
