Focusing on the delivery of patient-centered care in the wilderness, instructors and practitioners of emergency medicine introduce many innovations to wilderness medicine, emergency medical services (EMS), and the conjoined subspecialty wilderness EMS (WEMS). They cover principles of wilderness EMS systems, managing wilderness medical conditions, and medical interface with technical rescue operations. Their topics include medico-legal considerations in wilderness EMS care, psychological first aid and stress injuries, managing diving injuries, the general management of trauma in the wilderness, and technical rescue interface: off-road vehicle and helicopter WEMS response.
