Mission

The International Journal of First Aid Education (IJFAE) disseminates scholarly and field based works to advance the knowledge and practices of first aid educators and curriculum designers. Works published may also assist funders, organizations, and governments to identify networks and best practices to inform policy, laws, and measurements surrounding first aid for the preparedness of individuals, communities, and populations.

This peer-reviewed bi-annual scholarly journal publishes significant evidence-based first aid education research findings, articulates unique and innovative ideas in first aid, challenges current practices and proposed changes, and disseminates information about the latest and best use of educational technologies, modalities, and outcomes measurement. The journal seeks to inspire new researchers and network professionals around the world with the common purpose of increasing helping behaviors during health emergencies for volunteer and professional rescuers.

Call for papers now open. The inaugural issue of this journal will be published in early June 2017. Deadline for submissions for this special issue is 5 May 2017.

Current Issue: Volume 1, Issue 1 (2017)
