We partner with universities, government, other ambulance services, health service providers and other specialist groups for research purposes. This may include activities such as analysis of routinely collected data or randomised clinical trials.

We have supported many research projects looking at aspects of ambulance service delivery including:

  • clinical treatments
  • strategies for planning and delivering high quality ambulance services
  • describing injury and illness in the community to inform prevention activities.

The QAS Medical Director, QAS Commissioner or Director-General Queensland Health must approve any requests for data or research.

The Information Support, Research and Evaluation Unit supervises all research activities involving QAS and manages the application process.
