Research networks

EMF is actively helping build capacity for emergency medicine research in Australia through research support networks.


EMF Research Support Network (RSN) 

EMF is piloting a Research Support Network (RSN) for emergency medicine research in Queensland. More information about this Network and the support available for Queensland researchers is available on the Research Support Network page of this website.

Collaborative Knowledge Network (CKN)


To complement the RSN and identify emergency medicine research opportunities in Australia, EMF is building an online Collaborative Knowledge Network.

The CKN will serve as a confidential collaboration space, encouraging the exploration of research ideas for all those involved in emergency medicine research.

It is envisaged that research projects will develop through this collaborative space and, if they meet our ethics and scientific review process, may be supported by EMF to secure research funding.

Queensland Emergency Research Collaborative (QERC)


Chair: Dr Fran Kinnear



QERC is a group of Queensland emergency medicine researchers meeting on a bi-monthly basis. This group evolved from the former research-subcommittee of the Queensland State-wide Network, and is functioning independently. EMF is now supporting this initiative.

QERC aims to improve the quality and impact of emergency health research activities by supporting multi-centre research and facilitate collaboration between institutions, health care providers, researchers and industry partners involved in the delivery of and advancement to emergency health care.

These meetings promote structured emergency care projects with a potential for state wide, national, or international relevance, and can help initiate interest or participation in your project.
