Established in 1992 by the UCLA Center for Prehospital Care, the Prehospital Care Research Forum at UCLA is dedicated to the promotion, education, and dissemination of prehospital research.

Despite numerous technological and scientific advances, EMS still lacks a unique volume of research for a solid scientific foundation. As a result, EMS clinicians, educators, and administrators often make decisions by trial and error. The Prehospital Care Research Forum at UCLA believes that it is the responsibility of emergency medical professionals worldwide to build a body of evidence to examine prehospital emergency care.
