Street Medic Wikia (beta), the online resource for street medics that anyone can edit

Many of the articles in the Medic mini-wiki are adaptations of other documents distributed under anti-copyright or in the public domain. If you create a new article from any existing free document original source, please link to this page and post your article's original source here.

A note on street medic document convention:
Documents written by street medics about protocols, ethics, scope of practice, health and safety, and even trainer outlines generally follow this convention. For the last fifty years, street medics have allowed the general public to copy and redistribute their public documents; and allowed other street medics to copy and redistribute their public documents, with or without modifying the documents. Currently used street medic training outlines are based on the first trainer outline, written by Annie H. almost 50 years ago, although no new medics have seen the original document or known its source. They have just inherited and improved the text to bring it into line with current medical and street medic practice.

This wiki assumes that texts which in practice are open documents among street medics may be wikified under the GNU Free Documentation License, to promote consistency between groups and prevent reduplication of efforts.

As articles are boldly edited, they will bear less resemblance to their original source.

Articles are listed in alphabetical order, by title.

Affinity group medic Edit

This article's original source was On the Ground street medics' website, in the documents section. Its original title was Affinity group medic's field guide There is a PDF (printable) version available online.

On the Ground printed and distributed their documents very freely, and so did all of the documents' recipients. Their guides are still the most widely available of any street medic literature, due to photocopies of photocopies of photocopies of the 2001 versions being currently distributed.

On the Ground is inactive or disbanded as of the mid 2000s.
