EMCare provides coverage of various aspects of the healthcare profession, including but not limited to: Biomedicine; Clinical, medical and healthcare social work; Emergency services; Evidence-based healthcare; Midwifery; Nursing development and management; Nursing education and training; Nursing specialties including coronary care; HIV/AIDS, hospice, palliative care, neonatal nursing, and others; Physical therapy; Psychiatry and mental health; Surgical technology; and Traumatology, emergency and critical care medicine. EMCare contains nearly 2 million records indexed with EMTREE, Elsevier's Life Science Thesaurus, which has been expanded with close to 1,500 nursing and allied health terms in addition to existing biomedical terms.
