Research at the Institute
Since 2012 the Institute of Emergency Medicine has been involved in a number of research projects which have now been successfully completed. These have included projects funded by the Czech Republic Technology Agency (Traumatech TA04011606, Arm and leg osteosynthesis TA03010804, completed in 2016 and 2017, plus FEMUR TH01020049, scheduled for completion in 2018).
The Institute has also been involved in a major grant-funded development project (MED-KA-NET, creating a cooperative network of institutions acting as stakeholders in emergency/disaster medicine: Operational Programme Education for Competitiveness, CZ.1.07/2.4.00/17.0113)
Currently, the key areas of research at the Institute are as follows (applications have been submitted for funding from the Czech Education Ministry’s interdisciplinary research grant scheme):
New interdisciplinary methods in disaster medicine and safety in health care facilities
The project aims to strengthen interdisciplinary partnerships among health care, IT and safety systems when dealing with the consequences of disasters and other crisis situations. This includes improved IT-based cooperation among health care disciplines and technical disciplines in order to maximize safety in health care facilities following such events.
Innovative treatment methods for the locomotive apparatus in trauma surgery
The main aim of the project is to contribute to health improvements in inhabitants of the Moravian-Silesian Region who have suffered severe injuries to the locomotive apparatus at work or in traffic accidents, and who are suffering permanent effects which hinder them in their work and their everyday lives.
