A new PEM research network!

Four members of the PREDICT Executive (Elliot Long, Stuart Dalziel, Franz Babl and Simon Craig) were invited to assist with a workshop aimed at furthering the development of a Paediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) research network in India. The March 2024 workshop was held in Bengaluru alongside the National Assembly on Pediatric Emergency Medicine (NAPEM) and built upon an initial development and prioritisation workshop held in Hyderabad last year.

Over twenty delegates attended the workshop, which resulted in the formation of a new national PEM research network in India: the Pediatric Resuscitation and Emergency Research Network of India (PRERNI).

We would like to extend our congratulations to the inaugural co-chairs of PRERNI – Prof Indumathy Santhanam and Prof Jayashree Muralidharan, as well as the other PRERNI executive members (Dr Suresh Kumar Angurana, Dr Raghu Vanaki, Dr Bharat Choudhary and Dr Mounika Reddy).

We look forward to continued collaboration over the coming years!
