Advancing knowledge

Since its inception, the Department of Emergency Medicine has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to building research capacity and advancing knowledge in Emergency Medicine.

Our investigators have a broad range of research interests that reflect the diverse nature of clinical practice in emergency departments and in pre-hospital care. Our particular research strengths are in the areas of:

  • EMS and trauma systems
  • resuscitation
  • advanced airway management
  • patient safety and clinical decision-making
  • medical education and knowledge transfer
  • public health and injury prevention

We collaborate closely with EMS colleagues across Nova Scotia, Canada and the United States, and our research support team offers their expertise in clinical trial coordination, database management, research administration, grant applications and Research Ethics Board submissions.

Our Division of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is a national leader in EMS research. To learn more about the Division’s work, visit the EMS website.
