Prehospital and Disaster Medicine serves as the official journal of the World Association for Disaster and Emergency Medicine (WADEM) and the International Society of Disaster Medicine (ISDM). During 1997, while in its twelfth volume, WADEM became the solo publisher of this vehicle for the dissemination of scientific information on international emergency medical services and disaster medicine. The National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP) parted from Prehospital and Disaster Medicine and WADEM to publish its own journal (Prehospital Emergency Care, reviewed in JAMA 1997;278:1794), geared toward the EMS community of the United States with an emphasis on prehospital issues. Prehospital and Disaster Medicine remains committed to the worldwide development and improvement of emergency and disaster medicine.
