The Monash Emergency Research Collaborative (MERC) is a multi-disciplinary collaborative network consisting of both clinical and research focused staff in emergency care.

MERC research is conducted across the three emergency departments (ED) of Monash Health at Clayton, Dandenong and Casey,  where more than 200,000 emergency presentations are triaged each year. We focus on undertaking translational research that provides outcomes aimed at driving the implementation of best practise emergency care. We believe that the care of patients in the emergency department benefits from an evidence-based, problem-orientated and patient-centered approach.

Research goals

  • Knowledge Translation
