A collaborative research network

for acute care in New Zealand


New Zealand/Aotearoa will have a world-leading, patient-centered emergency care research network which will improve emergency care for all, so that people coming to any emergency department in the country will have access to the same world-class emergency care.


Our Mission


To work with stakeholders at all levels to foster discovery and advance the art and science of emergency medicine. To achieve this mission we will pursue the aims of:

  • Knowledge creation through high quality research and innovation

  • Knowledge translation through stakeholder involvement and networks, both local and international

  • Stewardship and value for both patients and the general public 


Our Values



By having the patient/consumer at the heart of everything we do, we support individual and family/whanau participation and decision-making about emergency care research at every level.



By conducting research of a high standard and evaluating the effectiveness of interventions while maintaining a practical approach, we create strong evidence to inform best practice.


Partnership & Openness

By working alongside local and international stakeholders we improve the quality of emergency care knowledge translation in New Zealand/Aotearoa and globally. We value the views of other professionals and diversity of culture and opinion. We openly share ideas and knowledge amongst research network members while respecting individual contributions.


Transparency & Integrity

We share information with integrity and advocate for each other’s projects in a culture of support and collaboration. We are trustworthy and communicate in clear language for all to understand.



By showing strong leadership we set the direction for emergency care research in New Zealand/Aotearoa and encourage innovation and change to achieve our shared vision.
