The Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) funds innovative research that improves the way people are cared for in a medical emergency. Our research is delivering better and more effective health services to save lives and money.
We are the only Australian organisation dedicated to driving, coordinating and supporting multi-disciplinary emergency medicine research and its translation. We also actively engage in educational and promotional activities to help translate research outcomes into real and practical benefits, which help save lives in medical emergencies.
At EMF, we are also adamant that valuable research outcomes are quickly adopted by emergency service professionals. To make this happen, we embed translation processes into our research programs and actively engage in educational and promotional activities to help transfer research into real and practical benefits in medical emergencies.
In 2015, EMF launched a Research Support Network (RSN) for emergency medicine research in Queensland public hospitals. This Network is a strategic initiative to support and foster research by emergency medicine clinicians and staff. Through this network, EMF is providing on the ground Research Development Managers who facilitate research projects, multi-disciplinary collaborations and the translation of new knowledge into better clinical practice. The RSN extends across Qld and has already helped facilitate grants to Toowoomba, Rockhampton and Mt Isa.
The 2017 Grant program is open and covers the full spectrum of projects from research to implementation and capability building. For those interested in applying go to: http://emergencyfoundation.org.au/research/apply-now/
