The EMF Board announced the Special Funding Round COVID-19 to fund innovative, high-quality emergency care research that improves patient and community outcomes, protects emergency healthcare staff from infection, and is translated into improved healthcare policy and/or practice across the Queensland health system.
EMF offers research grants to all clinicians providing direct clinical care to patients within 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.
A Special Funding Round COVID-19 Review Panel consisting of external expert reviewers and EMF representatives considered all EOIs, inviting a short list of applicants to submit full applications. The Special Funding Round COVID-19 Review Panel assessed full applications based on their scientific and overall merit. EMF thanks the Queensland Government for funding this Program through Queensland Health.
