A new website aims to encourage, educate and support pre-hospital researchers worldwide, and in a nutshell to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for all things related to pre-hospital research.

The website contains articles on reading papers, drafting proposals and ethics applications, through to upcoming research events and conferences, featured research, a forum for exchanging ideas and researcher support tools.

The founder of the website is Alan Batt, an Irish trained paramedic now living in Canada, and founder of the site. He told ‘Emergency Services Ireland’ that resources for pre-hospital researchers are few and far between, adding that his site aims to remedy that.
