ESO/PCRF Research Forum: May 5-7 2020

Event Date: 5.5.20 - 5.7.20

11500 Alterra Parkway, Austin TX

The ESO-PCRF Research Forum scheduled to begin May 5 in Austin, Texas is being postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are considering alternative dates and will follow up with you once they are selected. If you are not already registered to attend but would like to be notified when new dates have been selected please submit the form on this page.
Additionally, you may be interested in the ESO COVID-19 Resource Center that includes data on COVID-19 EMS responses and analysis by the ESO Research Team. If your agency uses ESO products, you can also find outbreak-specific product information on the Resource Center.

We know how important the work you are doing in your communities is, especially right now. Getting through the outbreak healthy and safe is the number one priority. We look forward to reconvening at a later date.

Now in its fourth session, the Research Forum, co-hosted by ESO and the Prehospital Care Research Forum, brings together clinical leaders, researchers, and data analysts to accelerate EMS research and ultimately, improve community health and safety through the power of data. During the three-day workshop, Forum participants will 

  • Learn the basics of EMS research methodology and gain familiarity with the role of Institutional Review Boards 
  • Discuss and refine research ideas to form clear and concise project aims  
  • Explore required data elements to determine viability and define the data query   
  • Start the literature review and development of the research abstract  

Past participants’ projects have been accepted by and presented at national conferences including NAEMSP and EMS World Expo 2019. To begin the registration process, please submit the form on this page; a follow-up email will be sent with next steps and a detailed questionnaire.
