We have a track record for producing high quality research going back for almost two decades. Our particular areas of expertise are in diagnostics and clinical decision making. Notable outputs include the CHALICE rule for children’s head injury, which forms the basis for the current NICE guideline; our research into early rule out strategies for cardiac chest pain, which has yielded high impact publications from the dawn of the troponin era to the present era of high sensitivity troponins. We have a particular desire to produce clinically relevant, pragmatic research that can positively impact upon patient care in the ED. Our group has had notable successes in this area for over many years, yielding high impact publications in the Lancet and BMJ.
