999 EMS Research Forum
The 999 EMS Research Forum is a UK based partnership that brings together academics and health-care providers with a research interest in emergency care. It has been actively promoting emergency care research since its formation in 1997. Board members come from a range of specialities and backgrounds and include paramedics, consultants in A&E and anaesthetics and academics.
Aims of the Forum:
- To encourage, promote and disseminate research and evidence-based policy and practice in 999 health-care
- To develop links between emergency health-care practitioners and the research community
- To run an annual research conference providing an opportunity to disseminate research and run workshops to build research capacity
- To continue developing international collaborations in prehospital care research
Each year the 999 EMS Research forum puts an open call for papers; submissions are peer reviewed and selected papers are presented at an annual conference. Prizes are awarded for Best Poster, Research Most Likely to Affect Practice, Most Innovative Use of Routine Data, and Highest Quality Research.
The UK Forum does not stand alone but in partnership with emergency care research forums in Australia and the US. The winner of the Highest Quality Research will be invited, and supported, to present their work internationally at one of our partner conferences.
