Liverpool Emergency Department
The Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research
Through applied medical research and partnerships with universities, hospitals and our local healthcare community, the Ingham Institute is working to radically transform health outcomes for the better – creating thriving communities, both locally and globally.
Emergency medicine is not defined by location, but may be practiced in a variety of settings including hospital-based and freestanding emergency departments (EDs), urgent care clinics, observation medicine units, emergency medical response vehicles, at disaster sites, or via telemedicine. The ED is a unique location at which patients are guaranteed access to emergency care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is able to deal with all types of medical emergencies (illness, injury and mental health) in all age groups. For the general public, the ED is the “shop window” of the health service.
Our philosophy is that good clinical research is an essential core activity that should run 24 hours a day and is integral to the function of our Emergency Departments. Structured research protocols bring high quality evidence-based practice to the bedside right now to benefit our patients, and help us to improve treatments and outcomes in the future. Our principal aim is to improve patient care and clinical outcomes in the ED.
