New to This Edition!
Based on feedback from program directors and educators around the country, we added two new chapters to the Eighth Edition:
- Medical Terminology. Medical Terminology was previously addressed in the Documentation chapter, but educators strongly preferred that we dedicate a standalone chapter to this important topic.
- Career Development. Recognizing that the U.S. health care system, and the role of the paramedic in it, are rapidly evolving, we’ve added a chapter on career development. In addition to discussing the changing and expanding career opportunities for paramedics, this chapter presents nontraditional specialties that paramedics may need in the future to fill evolving roles in the healthcare system
