About Us

PEC-ANZ is a new NHMRC-funded Centre of Research Excellence established in 2018. Our team comprises some of the most experienced and renowned Australian researchers from the fields of prehospital emergency care and trauma. You can view our researchers here.

We aim to save lives by improving the experiences of Australians relying on ambulance services. We will do this by:

  • Generating new knowledge that will enable efficient and effective prehospital emergency care policy and practice.
  • Facilitate and coordinate collaborative research projects and build capacity in emergency medical services (EMS) research in Australia (and New Zealand).
  • Strengthen the evidence-base on which ambulance services can formulate policies and practices, in order to maximise patient outcomes.

Over the coming years, our new Centre will engage in a series of trials and research projects exploring delivery of care to vulnerable people, the 000 call centre pathway, pain management, explore the impact of emergency-related communications campaigns and more.
