Patient Care

Letter to Our Readers

The Prehospital Care Research Forum at UCLA believes that it’s the responsibility of emergency medical professionals worldwide to develop a body of evidence that examines prehospital emergency care. Our mission is to assist, recognize and disseminate prehospital care research conducted at all provider levels.

Each year, we acknowledge those authors who have contributed to the science of EMS through the publication of this supplement and their subsequent presentations. As part of our ongoing pledge, the Prehospital Care Research Forum at UCLA continues to educate the medical community through a variety of seminars, lectures and workshops throughout the country. These presentations are designed to demystify the research process and provide participants with the tools to conduct research in their community.

I would like to thank our volunteer Board of Advisors and Associates. Without the dedication of these volunteers none of this would be possible.
In addition to the hard work of many, many people, much of our success can be attributed to the commitment of several organizations dedicated to research in prehospital care. I would like to acknowledge our Founding Partners: Jems Communications (now known as Elsevier Public Safety), Benefactors SSCOR Inc., and  Friend FISDAP. The generous support of these fine organizations and our affiliation with the National Association of EMS Educators and the National Association of EMTs are what enable the Research Forum to fulfill our mission.

The future of EMS depends on the quality and quantity of research we produce. We invite you to take a stand, conduct research in your community and submit it in 2015 for the greater benefit of EMS.

Sincerely,
Baxter Larmon, PhD, MICP
Director, Prehospital Care Research Forum at UCLA
