DREEAM is not just a department - it's a way of thinking
DREEAM is headed by Professor Frank Coffey; it was created as a single team with research and education functions and had an inter-professional focus from the start. DREEAM incorporates research into education and ultimately into clinical practice. DREEAM promote and enable inter-professional collaborative education so that we create teams, that work as teams to optimise patient care in our Emergency Department (ED).
DREEAM began as a stand alone research team embedded within ED in 2004, they have since created a joint teaching and research facility still adjacent to the ED, which increases engagement with staff working clinically. This proximity directly supports patient recruitment for research trials and enables DREEAM to respond to the educational needs of our large multi-professional workforce easily.
DREEAM have a reputation for delivering high quality educational programmes to healthcare professionals in the pre-hospital and hospital arena. This now also extends into the wider community where we work with schools, leisure facilities and the military amongst many other groups.
This website showcases our current and past research projects including local, national and international studies. You will also find information about our educational programmes and courses that we offer. We offer bespoke training courses which can be delivered within your own organisation.
