Our Research Manager Carla has recently returned from a trip to Dublin where she attended the highly successful International Conference on Emergency Medicine.
Spanning four days, the conference featured eight parallel informative sessions daily, with content ranging from clinical management to health care policy, disaster management to the Emergency Department’s of the future.
Despite the location, Australia was well represented throughout with thirty six speakers and forty seven posters stemming from national researchers and medical professionals; ensuring that we provided a significant footprint at this international level.
Also special congratulations to Ed Oakley- who sits on our Scientific Advisory Council- who was presented with the Post Original Research Award for his presentation on his ‘Randomised Trial Comparing Intravenous and Nasogastric Hydration in Infants with Bronchiolitis’ research.
Attending this event really reiterated how we are so lucky to have funding for Emergency Medicine research and fellowships in Queensland; QEMRF really is only one of a kind.Leave a comment
On 16 May 2012, QEMRF held the first of their Insight Series at the XXXX Ale House Theatre. The evening started with pre-clinical use of blood from Dr Dan Bodnar, who is trialling the use of blood at the side of the road. The next presenter, Dr John Paul Tung, looked at sheep models in order to ascertain effective use of blood. Dr Catherine Hurn spoke of protocols she is involved with at the RBWH in optimizing massive transfusion and the grand finale was an incredibly entertaining lecture from Prof James Isbister on the use of blood throughout history and the difficulties with current methodologies.
