This essential manual covers the basics of mobile medicine, the elements of transfer, patient and team safety, and the practical and clinical considerations associated with the patient transfer process. Each chapter makes use of checklists, practical examples and content summaries to help readers understand and overcome the challenges of both adult and paediatric patient transfers.
