Paediatric Emergency Medicine
The paediatric emergency medicine research is based at our tertiary paediatric ED (Monash Medical Centre in Clayton), and extends to our mixed adult-paediatric departments at Dandenong and Casey. Over 60,000 children are seen across the three Monash Health emergency departments each year.
Our paediatric emergency medicine has wide interests in all aspects of the emergency care of children, including critical care and resuscitation, common illnesses and clinical procedures, diagnostic testing, pain management and clinical decision rules. We have strong links with all Monash Children's inpatient units, as well as the Royal Children's Hospital ED and other paediatric EDs across Australia and New Zealand.
