The Division of Paediatric Emergency Medicine carries out research in many different areas. Currently, the major research foci are the management of acute respiratory difficulty, musculo-skeletal injuries and theraputics in Paediatric Emergency Medicine.
The Division remains an active participant in the national Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program (CHIRPP) Injury Prevention program.
A Research Council has been established to facilitate the coordination of research from within the Division as well as promote the cooperation with other paediatric centres in Canada and around the world. A full-time academic co-ordinator coordinates research efforts in the Department to bring research to a new level. Finally, our highly successful student volunteer research assistant program facilitates the enrollment of emergency department patients into many impactful local, national and international prospective research studies every year.
