1397 I dont have time: strategies for increasing research engagement in emergency department clinicians
Conclusion Registry data show 41 distinct initiatives established in the time period led or delivered by the research group. These included face-to-face teaching, publication writing support, a research internship program and small grant funding. Research outputs (publications or conference abstracts) showed a 23-fold increase from two in 2018 to 47 in 2021. The project to develop a research culture in ED has had a positive effect on both type and number of research-related activities across all clinical staff groups. This case study illustrates how research activities delivered close to clinical practice under visible, focused clinical research leadership can increase research engagement. Challenges of a clinically complex context were overcome by embedding a multidisciplinary clinical research unit, linking research delivery with clinical academic development. This model could be replicated in other settings.
