What are the priorities for prehospital research?

In July 2010, the Department of Health published a document titled: ‘Building the evidence base in prehospital urgent and emergency care: a review of research evidence and priorities for future research’. This document reviews the existing research and evidence in the field of prehospital urgent and emergency care, and identifies gaps where future research would be valuable. Here, Samantha Brace, Research Fellow, Clinical Trials Unit, Warwick Medical School and Advanced Clinical Practitioner, Emergency Medicine, Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, and Matthew Cooke, Professor of Emergency Medicine, Warwick Medical School and Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, comment on the report in depth.
