Paediatric Emergency Medicine PSP

Paediatric Emergency Medicine is the medical specialty that cares for acutely injured and unwell children in hospital, usually within the setting of Accident and Emergency Departments (A&E). 

Paediatric Emergency Medicine Priority Setting Partnership

Paediatric Emergency Research in the UK and Ireland (PERUKI), in partnership with the James Lind Alliance, has set up this Priority Setting Partnership to identify the Top 10 priorities for future research.  Children attend emergency departments with virtually any condition including, but not limited to, medical, surgical, orthopaedic, and mental health concerns, so it is important to identify priorities for research in how best to treat and care for them.

The PSP will focus on children and young people (birth to 18 years) using emergency care services and is inclusive of all of the UK and Ireland.

The Paediatric Emergency Medicine PSP initial survey opened in February 2024 and is now closed. More information will be available here when the shortlisting survey opens.

Dr Charlotte Sloane, PSP Project Coordinator, talks about the Paediatric Emergency Medicine PSP on the Two Paeds in a Pod podcast.
