EMF Research Support Network (RSN) Manager, Tegwen Howell, recently spoke to ABC Radio’s Piia Wirsu about why EMF is looking to partner with Tasmania and the benefits the EMF model could bring to the State.
EMF first reached out to Tasmanian emergency doctors in late 2017 to discuss how funding clinician-led research could help the State’s health system and its two major Emergency Departments retain their ACEM training accreditation.
Over the past 10 years, EMF has developed a successful funding and research support infrastructure model (our RSN) for emergency medicine research. With $2 million a year in funding from Queensland Health, EMF has awarded more than $16 million in research grants and supporting the RSN. It’s estimated that this year alone, EMF-funded research will deliver more than $31 million in economic benefits to the Queensland healthcare system.
