The Point-of-Care Ultrasound Research Network

Purpose & organization

The purpose of The Point-of-Care Ultrasound Research Network is to exist as a collaborative platform for researchers within the field of Point-of-Care Ultrasound. The main field of research is in Emergency Medicine. However, Point-of-Care Ultrasound is not limited to this specialty, and the research network aim to support cross-specialty research as we believe that a multi-specialty approach can only strengthen the research. The network welcomes many professions and is not limited to medical doctors.

The main goals of the network are the following:

1. Contributing with original research in the field of Point-of-Care Ultrasound

2. Teaching Point-of-Care Ultrasound on all levels. 

3. Communicate about the research findings and contribute to the general knowledge of evidence within the field.

The Point-of-Care Ultrasound Research Network aims to create an open research environment where ideas can flourish with the common aim of investigating the smartest use of ultrasound to the best possible benefit to the patient.
