South Western Emergency Research Institute

Leading the drive for a scientific and research based approach to emergency care.

Almost 96,000 people were treated in Liverpool Hospital ED in 2019, with every possible illness and injury, from trivial and irritating to serious and life-threatening, and every year this number grows larger. As the community of South Western Sydney expands, with its unique cultural mix, the work of Liverpool Hospital ED grows with it.

The doctors, nurses and other staff are here to save lives, relieve pain and provide treatment to all members of the community who walk in, or arrive by ambulance.

The SWERI is here to investigate who are patients are, what is wrong with them, how sick they are, how we can most effectively diagnose them, what treatments work most successfully and what makes people survive, recover and leave hospital.

Emergency medicine is an intensely science and evidence-based speciality, and SWERI brings the science to emergency care at Liverpool…
