As all aspects of emergency healthcare delivery face extreme pressure, the resilience of our frontline workforce has been stretched to the limit. EMF has responded by prioritising our resources toward reinvigorating emergency medicine research. This work is ongoing - we look forward to sharing more news in 2022.
Hot off the press! The EMF Annual Report is now online featuring a few examples of why our collective efforts to support research must and will continue. This includes:
▪ Emergency healthcare in remote communities and police watch house environments
▪ End-of-life care in the emergency department - and the patient that inspired this research
▪ How research is changing pre-hospital care for trauma patients, and more.
EMF Round 36 grant recipients will be announced in the coming weeks, stay tuned to our website and follow @emfresearch on social media for announcements.
The 2022 International Conference on Emergency Medicine takes place in Melbourne. With the theme Better Care for a Better World, ICEM22 is focused on participation, engagement and reconnecting with why we work in emergency medicine and provide emergency care. Above all, this is a rare opportunity for EMF grant recipients to share research achievements and outcomes with peers and colleagues around the country and beyond. We hope to see you there!
