EMR Complete: A Worktext is Brady’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, “Stop, Review, Remember” exercises, and “Big Picture” 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.
