Real standards for clinical care Providing standards for the clinical care that is delivered to patients in the prehospital setting is very challenging. The environment of care can be different for every patient and every incident attended. They are rigid statements that allow little of the flexibility that is required to deliver optimum care, in the right place, at the right time. Guidelines, however, are recognised to reduce unacceptable or undesirable variations in practice and provide a robust basis for providers to deliver the best care. In addition to the printed books, digital editions are available to purchase for download onto iOS iPad, iPod, iPhone and Android devices.
