Queensland Research Program


Overview

Since the first Queensland Research Program grant round opened in 2008, EMF has awarded more than $19.8 million to over 230 research grants and played an integral role in building an active emergency medicine research culture in Queensland. The state now boasts a growing cohort of high-achieving emergency medicine clinician-researchers who are helping improve patient outcomes within the Queensland healthcare system, as well as internationally.

In response to the global pandemic, the EMF Special Funding Round COVID-19 was announced in April 2020 to fund innovative, high-quality emergency care research. Five projects were chosen. Read more here.

Through the Queensland Research Program, EMF offers research grants to all clinicians providing direct clinical care to patients in an emergency within the Queensland public hospital emergency departments*, the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) and the Retrieval Services Queensland (RSQ). This includes nurses, paramedics, allied health professionals and rural generalists as well as emergency specialists.

EMF thanks the Queensland Government for funding this program through Queensland Health.
