2018 PCRF Abstracts: Research Driving Practice

Oct 23, 2018

Established in 1992, the Prehospital Care Research Forum (PCRF) is dedicated to the promotion, creation, and dissemination of prehospital research. In this, our second year in partnership with EMS World, we are proud to feature selected abstracts from the International Scientific Symposium, to be held during EMS World Expo, Oct. 29–Nov. 2 in Nashville, as well as proceedings from the 23rd annual National Association of EMS Educators Symposium, which occurred in September.

The PCRF is proud to highlight the work of EMS providers who are advancing the profession with science. We believe it is the responsibility of emergency medical professionals worldwide to practice evidence-based medicine and develop a body of evidence that examines prehospital emergency care.

Each year we make research more accessible and understandable through the publication of these abstracts. We hope you will join us in creating a culture of science in EMS by participating in our symposia, workshops, and monthly journal clubs.
