Congratulations to the authors of the Oxford Handbook of Expedition and Wilderness Medicine! The second edition of their book won BMJ Book of the Year in the ‘Primary Health Care’ category this week. A total of 680 books were nominated, making this a significant achievement and another marker of how well our specialty has been progressing of late.
We’re big fans of the OHEWM at Adventure Medic HQ, and have used it (in book and app form) from the Bolivian Andes to the Moroccan desert. Definitely a well-deserved win!
