Patient assessment may be the most challenging subject for EMS students to grasp, and there never seems to be enough time in the classroom for practice. Patient Assessment Practice Scenarios allows students to fine-tune their understanding of the patient assessment process. This BLS- and ALS-level text includes 150 EMS practice scenarios (75 trauma and 75 medical) that focus on the assessment process as dictated by the National Registry medical assessment and trauma assessment skill sheets. Each case is a script of an emergency call. The student and proctor (who may or may not be an instructor) may read through the case for rote practice of the assessment process, or the student may verbally work through the assessment process, with cues from the book read by the proctor. Cases may also be used as homework, in the classroom, or for self-study! This book is for BLS or ALS students who want to successfully learn patient assessment inside and out before actually working in the field, and any EMS provider who wants to refresh his or her assessment skills.

This book aims to provide an easily accessible quick reference guide for advanced nursing students preparing to undertake practical examinations to assess advanced clinical practice competence, and students preparing for practical examinations in non-medical prescribing assessment. These examinations are commonly known as objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs). The book is a preparation and revision tool, designed to be read in conjunction with any recommended core clinical textbooks: however, along with giving students step-by-step instructions on performing well in OSCE scenarios, it also gives guidance to academic staff on preparing to teach and mark OSCEs. This book uses a case study approach to OSCEs in a coherent, consistent, and easily understandable style. Both authors are clinical academic nurse practitioners who regularly work in clinical practice in conjunction with teaching advanced nurse practitioner and non-medical prescribing students.

"The 2004 Canadian Acid Deposition Science Assessment has been prepared by researchers from the federal and provincial governments and academia. This assessment builds upon the results presented in the 1997 Canadian Acid Rain Assessment. The assessment consists of two documents, the Summary of Key Results and the Assessment. The Summary of Key Results synthesizes the major findings of the Assessment in the context of ten questions and subquestions put forth by the acid deposition policy and science communities. The Assessment presents a comprehensive review of acid deposition science in Canada."--Environment Canada Website.

This book is intended as a resource for all those involved in simulation-based healthcare education within the hospital environment, either within a dedicated simulation learning area or in-situ in the practice area. The basic principles will also be useful to individuals involved in simulation in any sector, including higher education institutions and voluntary aid societies. Over the last 50 years, there has been a growing interest in this method, as part of a blended learning approach, to improve knowledge, skills and behaviour. There is currently an opportunity for simulation to evolve from being a reactive process (in which a targeted group uses a single simulation to prepare for a particular type of incident) to a proactive process (in which repeated simulations allow development of the entire workforce over a period of time). This book aims to give simulation facilitators a deeper understanding of the process they are using, to ensure that every simulation is patient-centred, educationally coherent, innovative and evidence-based, delivers high-quality educational outcomes and value for money, and provides equity of access. CONTENTS: What is simulation? Scenario / programme development Introduction to the scenario Running the scenario Debriefing Simulation for the interprofessional team Simulation in a dedicated simulation area Simulation in the clinical area Simulation in a virtual area Simulation and resuscitation training Simulation for assessment Quality assurance Example scenario
