Emergency Department Network

The Emergency Department Network comprises physiotherapists who have an interest, or work, in emergency departments. This is a growing area of physiotherapy, particularly with the recent adoption of the National Emergency Access Target or 'four-hour rule' which aims to have patients admitted or discharged within four hours of presentation. Evidence suggests that the emergency physiotherapists can assist with achieving such ED targets particularly for musculoskeletal patients.
