Up-to-date

Guidelines are not set in stone: they change in line with scientific progress. In this regard, 2010 was an important year, as the new European resuscitation and first aid guidelines were published.

The consequence: first aid manuals and courses have to be updated.

EFAM 2011 has translated the new guidelines into ready-made texts with photos and illustrations. These can be worked into your training materials effortlessly.

Evidence based

First aid recommendations must be reliable. This is why EFAM 2011 is evidence based.

The 'International first aid and resuscitation guidelines 2011' of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) have been used as the foundation. In these guidelines, recommendations are made by combining evidence from scientific literature with the practical experience of specialists.

Validated by first aid experts

EFAM 2011 has been validated by an international panel of first aid experts, who looked at its medical content and educational usefulness. In short, EFAM 2011 is a solid resource.

High-quality photographs and illustrations

In addition to the text, you also get high-quality (300 dpi) photos and illustrations, suitable for publications or educational use.
