African Journal Of Emergency Medicine : Revue Africaine De La Medecine D'urgence




This special edition issue for the African Journal of Emergency Medicine was commissioned by the International Federation for Emergency Medicine (IFEM). Within this issue are 14 articles with a focus on conducting research in resource limited settings. The project is a joint effort between the Core Curriculum and Education Committee, and the Research Committee of IFEM.


As global emergency care needs increase and the practice of emergency medicine expands across the world, it is necessary to increase evidence-based medicine for clinical and systems improvements in resource limited settings. Emergency clinicians are well suited to identify, define and address unanswered research questions using both quantitative and qualitative approaches to research. The Global Emergency Medicine Literature Review (GEMLR), published annually, is a resource providing the breadth and depth of research relevant to global emergency care practice. As the need for emergency care systems in low- and middle-income countries increases, it is imperative to address key knowledge gaps in emergency medicine practiced in resource limited settings.
