One of the EUSEM’s major goals is to promote and facilitate good clinical research in Emergency Medicine and in particular multi-centre clinical trials and surveys.

On these pages we will be publishing protocols and projects and invite centres interested in participating to contact us.

EUSEM’s official journal, the European Journal of Emergency Medicine, publishes good quality research and is free of charge to EUSEM members.

On 4 April 2001, the European Council and the European Parliament adopted the Directive 2001/20/CE, on ‘the approximation of the laws, regulations and administrative provisions of the Member States relating to the implementation of good clinical practice in the conduct of clinical trials on medicinal products for human use’. Member States were required to transpose the Directive to their national laws by 1 May 2003 and apply it from 1 May 2004.

The EU Clinical Trial Register provides information on clinical trials in European Union (EU) member states and the European Economic Area (EEA) and clinical trials which are conducted outside the EU/EEA if they form part of a paediatric investigation plan (PIP).
