Emergency Medicine Research
The research program in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Rhode Island, Miriam, and Hasbro Childrens Hospital was established by UEMF to support investigator-initiated research.
The program is supported by a full-time Clinical Research Coordinator, a departmental Research Administrator, a staff of research assistants, and a statistician. The department maintains clinical research space within the RIH ED as well as fully-equipped basic science laboratories, and has ongoing collaborations with Brown University and other hospital departments.
Past research studies have addressed such areas as wound care management, acute stroke, sepsis, pain management, DVT management, ultrasound guidance, and flu. The program is overseen by Dr. Gregory Jay, Associate Chair for Research.
