Changes to the Prehospital care section of the journal

It has been recognised by the Editorial Board that whilst original papers are an important part of any journal the inclusion of other material may be of particular importance to readers of the Prehospital care section for whom prehospital care may not be their primary occupation and wish to use this section of the journal to ensure they are keeping up to date with developments in this field.

As a result we have introduced material other than just scientific papers into this section—probably the most notable example being the ABC of Community Emergency Medicine. In addition we have also introduced Equipment Reviews—Best Evidence Equipment Reviews (BEER’s) and Case Reports with a more structured format. In the next few months you will also see a number of commissioned articles reviewing the up to date management of topics, which we feel may be of interest to readers.

In order to continue development of this section of the journal we do need help and participation from outside the editorial team. Should you feel that there is a particular area of immediate care, of which a review article would be useful, then we would be delighted to hear from you. Also if you would be happy to undertake an Equipment Review, or have a Case Report which you would like to submit in our new structured format we would wish to hear from you.

If you have any other suggestions for the development of this section of the journal please do not hesitate to let the Prehospital Editors know your ideas.
