HALLMARK FEATURES:

 

Pedagogical features designed to provide you with the best possible learning resource–to practice what you’ve learned. 

  • Each chapter includes a Case Study; Stop, Think, and Understand self quizzes; Chapter Review exercises; and a Scenario.
  • You will also find a running historical timeline documenting the NSP’s rich history, giving insight on how and why the organization was founded and continues to serve.
  • Each chapter starts with a case study called Case Presentation. The Case Update provides readers with more information about the patient, the progression of the chief complaint, assessment, and management. At the end of each segment, readers are asked what they would do next to begin the critical thinking process. The Case Disposition provides a conclusion at the end of the chapter. 
  • Key terms are listed in the front of each chapter.  Each is also placed with its definition in the margin at the point where the term is first used.
  • Objectives describe and delineate learning outcomes desired for each chapter and highlight testable knowledge for which learners are responsible. They are repeated in the margin where information related to the objective is introduced and discussed.
  • A completely new, dynamic, visually appealing photo program captures the spirit and skill of providing outdoor emergency care.
  • Found at key points in the chapter, Stop, Think, and Understand (STU) exercises contain a variety of questions and activities designed to help readers evaluate their comprehension of material just covered in that portion of the chapter.
  • Stop, Think and Apply (STAs) activities and questions found at the end of each section of the book offer critical-thinking as well as scenario-based questions that require the reader to consider in-depth all aspects of an emergency situation in formulating a plan.
  • OEC Skills, at the end of chapters where skills are introduced, provide a visual reference to procedures such as applying a traction splint or backboard. Some Skills have accompanying Skill Guides that identify critical performance indicators (CPIs)–specific steps required for the reader to perform that skill.
  • Each chapter ends with a Chapter Summary, Remember..., and Key Points that offer useful reinforcement of chapter content.
  • Chapter Review material includes a short scenario related to chapter content.  Questions are posed for readers to assess their comprehension of chapter material.
  • Suggested Readings recommended by the chapter author provide additional information from subject-matter experts.

Access to MyNSPKit–a one-stop shop for all online instructor and student resources.

  • Includes a Resource Manual, test bank, and PowerPoint lecture slides for instructors.
  • Includes quizzes, animations, video clips, audio glossary, games, web links, and more for both instructors and readers.
