It publishes original research, updates in policy or in practice guidelines in the field of emergency care, descriptions of practice, literature reviews, case studies, shorter opinion articles and commissioned book reviews.

It also publishes continuing professional development articles to inform, support and educate nurses working in this field of practice, and to help contributors and their readers prepare for revalidation.

If you have an idea for an article or how to develop the journal in print or online, the editorial team wants to hear from you. How about any of the following topics, for example:

  • Sepsis
  • Management of trauma
  • Meeting waiting time targets and improving patient flow
  • Patient safety
  • Sustainable staffing and staff development
  • Treating and managing ‘minor’ injuries
