Our Supporters

DevelopingEM receives ZERO financial support from any external bodies.

The Alfred Emergency & Trauma Centre (E&TC) is a purpose-built modern facility consisting of a level one adult trauma centre, resuscitation and trauma bays, fully monitored general cubicles, rapid assessment cubicles, fast-track cubicles and a co-located emergency short-stay unit. The Alfred E&TC is the busiest trauma centre in Australasia.

It has also been a leader in implementing new models of care to ensure greatest accessibility for patients and efficiency of service delivery.

Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) in New South Wales (NSW), Australia employs two of the co-directors of DevelopingEM- Lee Fineberg and Mark Newcombe. Both are senior staff specialists in Emergency Medicine and have worked in the region since 1998.

ISLHD services nearly 400,000 residents in an area stretching 250 Km along the coast of NSW south from the outskirts of Sydney. Eight health facilities provide excellent health care for a diverse urban and rural population.

The most recent accreditation of emergency medicine services in the ISLHD region recognised the work of DevelopingEM since 2011 in providing a forum for critical care education and collaboration with colleagues from around the globe.

This recognition has led to formalised support by ISLHD for DevelopingEM.

With this support we hope to collaborate with ISLHD and the University of Wollongong to expand the reach of DevelopingEM.
