The Queensland Government has announced funding of $1.67 million in grants for emergency medical research.


Five types of grants were awarded to 12 recipients to research diverse issues such as treatments for trauma, patient flow and infections.


“We’re committed to supporting those who are discovering new ways of delivering treatment in this critical field” said Queensland Health Minister Geoff Wilson. “Emergency departments are the frontline of our health system with more than 4300 patients receiving care every day.”

The Queensland Emergency Medicine Research Foundation has awarded over $5.5 million to emergency medicine projects in Queensland since it was established in 2007. The Foundation was established with the support of Queensland Health and the Queensland Government to allocate grants to individuals and project groups interested in improving the care of patients in Emergency Departments in Queensland.
