Research

One of CAEP’s four pillars is to provide a forum for Canadian EM research. Both the Research Committee and Academic Section are committed to fostering and developing EM research across Canada. In 2016 the Network of Canadian Emergency Researchers (NCER) was established, which will enable EM researchers to conduct multi-centre research and education studies, provide mentorship, and ultimately improve patient care for all Canadians.

The CAEP Research Committee supports the development of research skills related to EM across Canada by administering two programs: the annual CAEP Grant Competition and CAEP Abstract Competition.

The CAEP Grant Competition identifies promising research grant proposals from medical students, residents, and junior faculty and awards five grants annually of up to $5000 each. Many CAEP Grant Winners continue with successful research careers.

The CAEP Abstract Competition evaluates hundreds of abstracts submitted from across Canada and internationally to be considered for presentation in the CAEP Conference held every year in June.

Submissions are carefully evaluated and scored by at least three highly-qualified reviewers. The Research Committee is reliant on these volunteers and appreciates their substantial contribution to support Canadian EM research.

Research Support

Additional grants have been provided through the generous donations received through the EM Advancement Fund (EMAF). Please consider donating and supporting Canadian EM research.

A competition for a $10, 000 EMAF grant for early-career researchers will be held at CAEP 2017.

NCER is CAEP’s way of promoting the best EM patient care by supporting multicentre trials through collaboration.
