104 Reflections from Sydney HEMS – the eBook. St.Emlyn’s

Firstly, the title of this post is not a typo. When I collated the reflective lessons from my series of Sydney HEMS blog posts I realised there were actually 104, not 101. Apologies for the misleading advertising, but there was so much good stuff to get in!  (Ed – let’s call it 101+3).

Secondly, you can get them all in one place in a new iBook/eBook for free, if you fancy downloading something to read at your leisure. Yes, it’s totally free!

Clicking this link will take you to iTunes where you can download the iBook for free. Apparently you need an iOS device with iBooks 1.5 or later and iOS 4.3.3 or later, or a Mac with iBooks 1.0 or later and OS X 10.9 or later.

The Sydney HEMS eBook on Researchgate

Clicking this link will take you to the eBook’s page on Researchgate where you can download the ePub version.

Although all the blog post content is there, I’ve added some extra pictures, a foreword and a chapter on the who, what, when, where, how and why of getting into Prehospital and Retrieval Medicine.

How do I cite this book?
