Monash Emergency Research Collaborative (MERC)

About MERC

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.  MERC is affiliated with Monash Health and Monash University (Department of Medicine within the School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health) and collaborates with a broad range of organisations and services.

External researchers wishing to conduct emergency research at Monash Health, and/or include Monash Health EDs in multi-site research studies, should contact one of our MERC team members. They will offer advice and support to facilitate the required departmental, ethics and organisational authorisations for such research.
