Message from the Director: Dr. Marc Afilalo
The Emergency Multidisciplinary Research Unit (EMRU), is a dynamic multidisciplinary research team that re-groups emergency physicians, epidemiologists, psychologists, statisticians, industrial engineers, operation management experts, nurses, residents and medical and graduate students.
Our objectives are to:
- Increase the amount and relevance of research in emergency medicine;
- Encourage researchers in emergency medicine to work on issues of priority (ED operations, crowding, functioning, patient safety, etc.);
- Increase the number of active researchers whose expertise is emergency medicine and build collaborations across institutions/disciplines and;
- Promote the development of knowledge and its transfer to political, administrative, and clinical decision makers
