64 OCTOBER 2018 | EMSWORLD.com S P O T L I G H T: RESEARCH DRIVING PRACTICE Presenting the Prehospital Care Research Forum's annual roundup of new prehospital research E stablished in 1992, the Prehospital Care Research Forum (PCRF) is dedicated to the promotion, creation, and dissemina- tion of prehospital research. In this, our second year in partnership with EMS World, we are proud to feature selected abstracts from the Inter- national Scientific Symposium, to be held during EMS World Expo, Oct. 29–Nov. 2 in Nashville, as well as proceedings from the 23rd annual National Association of EMS Educators Sym- posium, which occurred in September. The PCRF is proud to highlight the work of EMS providers who are advancing the profession with science. We believe it is the responsibility of emergency medical professionals worldwide to practice evidence-based medicine and develop a body of evidence that examines prehospital emergency care. Each year we make research more accessible and under- standable through the publication of these abstracts. We hope you will join us in creating a culture of science in EMS by participating in our symposia, workshops, and monthly journal clubs. On the second Monday of every month at 1 p.m. East- ern, podcasts focus on the content of Dr. Tony Fernandez's "Turning Research Into Practice" (Trip Report) column in EMS World Magazine. New this year we are adding a joint pod- cast with the National Association of EMS Educators dur- ing which Dr. Megan Corry will focus on the "PCRF Research Alert" articles she authors for EMSWorld.com. Register for all podcasts at www.prehospitalcare.org. We would like to thank our volunteer board of advisors and 33 associates. Without the dedication of these volunteers, none of this would be possible. In addition to the hard work of many people, much of our success can be attributed to the commitment of organizations dedicated to research in prehospital care. I would like to acknowledge our strategic partner, EMS World; education partner, the National Associa- tion of EMS Educators; founder, iSimulate; benefactor, ESO Solutions; partners, FirstWatch, Limmer Creative, and Jones & Bartlett Learning; and friends, Fisdap, Pocket Nurse, and Weber State University. The generous support of these fine organizations and our affiliation with the National Associa- tion of EMTs and the International Academies of Emergency Dispatch are what enable the PCRF 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 2019 for the greater benefit of EMS. Our PCRF mentors are standing by to assist you. Sincerely, David Page, MS, NRP Director, Prehospital Care Research Forum at UCLA P CRF SA L U T E S O U R SU PP O R TIN G O R GA NIZ ATIO N S:
