|CaHRU is proud to be a parrtner in the European Pre-Hospital Research Network (EPRN). In 2018 the European Pre-hospital Research Network (EPRN) was founded to link ambulance clinicians and academics from several countries wanting to improve ambulance care.
|Total funding to date
|EPRN seeks to accelerate the knowledge generation, synthesis and translation of evidence to practice in the field of ambulance care.
|1. To facilitate the relationship development among clinicians and researchers from practice and academia to contribute to improvements in policy, practice, research capacity and evidence genesis in the field of ambulance care.
2. To promote the utilisation of simulation-based research methodology in the early stages of evidence genesis.
3. To collaborate on research projects, share workload and expertise and provide access to equipment, facilities and research participant.
|The Network use a wide range of methods, including simulation based methods, to answer research questions relevant to ambulance care.
|EPRN has been created as an open forum to offer inclusive, collaborative approaches for clinicians and academics to encourage original contributions to knowledge no matter how advanced their research skills are.
