Trauma research key investment

Motorists are being urged to drive safely on the roads this Easter as the Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) is gearing up to save more lives following accidents through its world-class  research program.

With funding from Queensland Health, EMF has invested more than $1 million to traumatic injury research projects since 2008.

Our researchers are looking to combat the loss of Australian lives from trauma through cutting-edge medical research.

Traumatic injury is the leading cause of death in people under 45 in Australia. Each year, almost half a million people are admitted to hospital with an injury, with 27 dying each day—almost 10,000 lives are lost each year.
