Summary

EMR Complete: A Worktextis Brady#x19;s first EMR offering that meets the National EMS Education Standards. This worktext is a combination text/workbook that reinforces student learning by enabling students to instantly apply knowledge throughout a chapter, not just at the end. In addition to the worktext format of the book, several pedagogical components have been integrated to ensure optimal student learning, including: a Navigation Guide, Objectives, Key Terms, Media Resources, #x1C;Stop, Review, Remember#x1D; exercises, and #x1C;Big Picture#x1D; scene illustrations. Review, Practice Examinations, Critical Thinking sections, and Case Studies reinforce key concepts and require the student to apply what they have learned, making this a true worktext. The knowledge and skills presented in this text maintain the perspective of the most important person in the EMS System-the one who arrives first.
