Emergency Medicine Research Program
The Emergency Medicine Research Program has two main areas:
Clinical Trials – We conduct multiple Randomized Control
Trials and Cohort Studies in the emergency departments of Hamilton Health
Sciences and St. Joseph’s Hospital. These studies are mostly part of multi-centre
trials in collaboration with our research partners at McMaster and other universities
and are funded primarily through peer-reviewed grants from the Canadian Institute
for Health Research, Canadian Blood Services, Physician Services Incorporated,
Heart and Stroke Foundation, and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term
Knowledge Translation - Best Evidence in Emergency Medicine (BEEM) is an evidence-based emergency medicine project to search for, identify, evaluate, and disseminate the most clinically relevant and highest quality research studies as they are published. BEEM was founded at McMaster University, however, BEEM faculty are an international collection of experts in emergency medicine, clinical epidemiology, and education from several universities including Washington University, Wright State University, McGill University, University of Ottawa, University of Alberta, Indiana University, University of Western Ontario, and University of Michigan.
BEEM’s research arm evaluates the quality and impact of its processes and product. As a knowledge translation program, BEEM publishes many of its summaries in the highest impact factor, peer-reviewed emergency medicine journals in the world.
