Currently running surveys:

1. RCEM Survey of Emergency Physicians on Global Emergency Medicine related activity

Deadline: March 2019

RCEM has recently established a Global Emergency Medicine Committee to further the development of training, research, networks and opportunities in this emerging field.

 

As such, this survey was designed to better describe the current status of global emergency medicine related activities by emergency physicians with links to RCEM.

 

The Committee are also working towards creating a network of members and fellows of the College both in the UK and around the world who are involved in global emergency medicine

 

Please note, that while the survey findings may be published, your personal identifiable data will not be made available to the public domain and all data will be handled according to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

2. Collaborative service evaluation survey - epilepsy and emergency service use

Deadline: N/A

The epilepsy group at the University of Liverpool are, along with colleagues from King’s College London and Sheffield, running a NIHR supported initiative called ‘Collaborate’.

There is momentum within the NHS to introduce an alternative care pathway that could help to reduce clinically unnecessary and avoidable emergency visits by those with established epilepsy, and improve subsequent ambulatory care.
The Collaborate initiative will use techniques such as discrete choice experiments and consensus workshops to harness this momentum and maximise the chances of success by ensuring any ‘alternative care pathway’ is acceptable to service users, professionals and feasible.

As part of the initiative, the group will be contacting a random sample of English emergency departments inviting them to complete a 10-minute online service evaluation. This will generate a national picture of what services and networks may be doing to reduce emergency visits for epilepsy and suspected seizures.

Should you receive an invitation relating to this evaluation we would be grateful if you would look upon it favourably. Partnership will be vital to the success of this worthwhile initiative.

If you have any questions, or would like further information about the Collaborate initiative, please contact the project research fellow, Dr Amy Mathieson at amy.mathieson@liverpool.ac.uk or 0151 795 7887.
