Prominent members of the maritime medicine community attending a NIVA meeting in Bergen in June 2008 were asked to contribute to the task of shaping a new textbook and an editorial board was created. They have helped the editors by suggesting authors, reviewing contributions and advising on the direction of the work and on the amendments needed for the second edition.
Textbook of Maritime Medicine v2
The Textbook of Maritime Medicine is a comprehensive learning tool aimed at providing health professionals and others with a complete overview of the field of maritime medicine, free of charge. The Textbook was moved to a new IT platform in October 2014 to enable readers to access it with tablet computers and smartphones. At the same time some revisions to the content of chapters were made.
