About EMERGENCY: Real stories from Australia’s ED doctors

Published by Penguin Australia in collaboration with the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM), Emergency: Real Stories from Australia’s ED Doctors is a collection of stories written by the men and women working in the intense and relentlessly demanding world of emergency medicine.

It gives readers the most compelling insight yet into the lives of real Australian emergency doctors.

This is a world where anything can happen, from catastrophic road trauma and acute drug-fuelled psychosis to cardiac arrest and domestic violence; emergency physicians have to deal with it all.

Collected and edited by Dr Simon Judkins, the stories they tell are funny, heartbreaking, shocking and moving.
