Dr. Marcel Émond is a certified emergency physician and has been in practice since 2004 at the level-1 trauma centre of the CHU de Québec- Hôpital Enfant-Jésus. He is a FRQ-S senior clinician scientist at the CHU – Laval University research centre and the Centre de recherche sur les soins et les services de première ligne de l’Université Laval (CERSSPL-UL).

To honor his acute sense of leadership for the promotion of technological innovation projects that changed the organization of medical practice in his region, Dr. Marcel Emond was awarded the Alain Cloutier Award of the Quebec Medical Association. He has also won the Department of Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine Outreach Award as well as the Distinctive University Mission Award from the Quebec Health and Social Services Establishment Association.

Since his first years in research, he has preserved national and international collaborations. He’s a member of the first Executive Committee of NCER.ca (Network of Canadian Emergency Researchers).

Over the last decade, much of his research has focused on clinical decision-making rules for the use of resources in the emergency department. Most of these projects resulted in articles being published in the Academic Emergency Medicine, Annals of Emergency Medicine, Canadian Journal of Emergency Medicine, Annals of Surgery, Journal of American Geriatrics Society, BMJ and CMAJ

He also led the creation of the CETIe team (Canadian Emergency and Trauma Initiative in Elders), a national multidisciplinary research team focusing on improving and preventing complications of acute care among elders. Composed of 24 clinical researchers, epidemiologists, statisticians, geriatricians, occupational therapists, nurses and economists, it’s one of the first CIHR teams to be recognized for making a link between emergency medicine, geriatrics and rehabilitation for patients with traumas ranging from minor to emergencies.
