Paediatric Emergency Medicine Research


PERUKI - the PEM research collaborative for the United Kingdom & Ireland


Formed  in August 2012, this collaboration unites clinicians and academics from  Emergency Departments in England, Ireland,  Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales who share the passion of  improving the emergency care of sick and injured children through  research.  Working collaboratively, PEM research activities across the  nations will be strengthened, with co-ordination of research activities,  and focus on common goals and agendas.  Over time, and by sharing  expertise, not only will large scale robust multi-centre clinical  research be developed and delivered, but translation into practice will  be achieved throughout the health regions.


PERUKI  also takes an active role in encouraging and mentoring new  investigators in the acquisition of research skills, regarding this as a  key area for the sustainability of PEM research going forward.
