PEM Research

Help research in paediatric emergency medicine moving forward!

Are you willing to contribute to a valuable study and to help increasing our understanding of children presenting to emergency departments in the time of Covid-19?

This interesting and promising research project, the “EPISODES study” (Principal Investigator: R. Nijman, Imperial College London) has been developed in collaboration with the EUSEM and will look to collect paediatric data from emergency departments from across Europe. It will focus on how the patterns of presenting problems of children in the ED, and how the delivery of emergency care to the paediatric population have been influenced by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

This is a great opportunity for you to participate in an international research group. You will be asked to provide anonymous, retrospective, and aggregated data for your institution and to complete a survey detailing your local health care delivery.

You can find more details and the description of the study here.

REPEM is a Research Network that includes physicians at the capacity of medical director, research director, consultant or director of medical education who work in a European paediatric emergency department. The network was established in October 2006 at the EUSEM Congress in Crete.


Improving emergency care for children through a high standard multi-national and multi-centre research.


  • To conduct high-level paediatric emergency research in Europe by combining the efforts of individual institutions and to enhance the image of paediatric emergency medicine as a credible academic discipline with its own research agenda
  • To facilitate and promote research activities among the participating institutions and develop cohesiveness between centres involved in the practice of paediatric emergency medicine
  • To create a research infrastructure for paediatric emergency medicine on an international level in the participating countries.
