The Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) is running a Rural and Remote Research Program grant round, offering up to $50,000 to support a collaborative research project in the field of emergency medicine for the benefit of rural and remote patients within Australia. Further funding for additional grants may be available.
Why applicants should apply
- This research grant is open to all Australian emergency healthcare clinicians, who provide direct clinical care. It offers you an opportunity to improve outcomes and/or healthcare services for patients in an emergency in rural and regional Australia.
- You will have funding to develop a research idea or further your research to a stage where you can apply for larger grants, such as through the NHMRC.
- You don’t have to be an emergency specialist to apply for this grant, with EMF encouraging applications from all emergency healthcare professionals, including (but not limited to): doctors, nurses, paramedics and allied health professionals who work in the emergency setting either in the pre-hospital or emergency department.
Benefits for Australians
- EMF is funding innovative research to improve the medical emergency survival rates for Australian’s living in rural and remote areas.
- One third of Australians live in regional, rural and remote areas. EMF believes clinician-researchers can deliver solutions to the unique challenges Australians face in accessing lifesaving healthcare during a medical emergency in the bush.
Application deadline: Expressions of Interest (EOIs) must be submitted by 5:00pm (AEST), Friday 25 May 2018.
