    Current clinical research

    The Emergency Research Group is located at The Royal Children's Hospital Emergency Department, which provides urgent medical care to children and adolescents. The department deals with about 82,000 children a year, ranging from newborns to teenagers. The hospital is a paediatric tertiary referral centre and provides the only paediatric trauma service for Victoria.

    The research group has a very strong commitment to clinical research across a broad range of topics. It provides research opportunities for medical and nursing students, paediatric and emergency trainees and higher degree students (MD, PhD) in emergency related topics.

    The research group is a member of PREDICT (Paediatric Research in Emergency Departments International Collaborative) emergency research network. This network provides a research platform for achieving multicentre acute care research in Australia and New Zealand. PREDICT recently won a prestigious National Health and Medical Research Council Centre for Research Excellence grant. The research group is also part of PERN (Pediatric Emergency Research Networks), which combines the efforts of research networks on several continents to investigate global acute care questions.
