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.
