Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Each Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system is unique in its development and scope of practice. In many instances, incorporates components of other models, It is important to the intellectual growth of the Emergency Medical Technicians that they visualize EMS design from an international perspective. This article describes the EMS system that exists in Hong Kong. It explores the changes that are occurring, defines the relationship between Hong Kong and China, and considers the influence that this evolving model might have on China after 1997.
