There have been a number of JRCALC Clinical Guidelines editions since the early 2000s, with the 2006 version being superseded in 2013, 2016 and 2019 – and then most recently in 2022 with the current edition. Most notable in this latest print edition is the removal of the medicines, that do however remain fully accessible on the JRCALC apps.
Following a three-year cycle, it is likely that the next reference edition will be published in 2025.
In addition to the full reference edition of the JRCALC guidelines (which comprises over 600 pages), guidance is also available in both pocket-book and digital formats.
With guidance being reviewed on a rolling basis, regular updates are released via the JRCALC Plus app and theiCPG app. As time has gone on, these JRCALC apps have become the defining and essential JRCALC resource for clinical guidance for UK paramedics, as the apps contain the complete and most current information.
In 2018, Emergency Birth in the Community was published. This handbook remains a practical, efficient tool to aid safe maternity care in the community, and has a place not only on bookshelves but also in your back pocket!
