The inaugural European Emergency Medical Dispatch conference was held at the Karolinka Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, in May 2013. The conference was supported by the European Resuscitation Council. The Resuscitation Research Group are passionate about dispatch research and have a unique collaboration with the Psychology Department at Edinburgh University. The team from Edinburgh had the chance to present some of their initial findings in Stockholm and also take a lead on publishing a synopsis of the conference in the Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine.
