Research Forum

Event Date: 9.25.2024 - 9.27.2024

Presented by ESO and the UCLA Prehospital Care Research Forum (PCRF)

The ESO/PCRF Research Forum is ideal for front-line clinicians and clinical leaders with innate curiosity and an itch to launch their next (or first!) EMS research project.

The Forum matches participants with clinical mentors, methodologists, and statisticians to accelerate EMS research with the goal of improving community health and safety through the power of data. During the three-day workshop, participants will:

  • Learn the basics of EMS research, from defining a question to the parts of a peer-reviewed manuscript.
  • Refine research ideas to ensure that the question/goal is clear.
  • Explore required data elements to determine viability and define the data query.
  • Work with a clinical mentor and statistician to create an analysis plan to answer your research question.
  • Start to develop a research abstract for submission to a national conference.
  • Prepare and deliver a presentation to ESO staff outlining selected research questions and preliminary findings.

The Forum is offered at no cost to participants. However, participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging.

To ensure the most beneficial experience, participation will be limited to 20-25 people. Selected applicants will be notified in July.

Applications open on April 15, 2024 and close on June 30, 2024.
