Western Journal of Emergency Medicine: Integrating Emergency Care with Population Health
MEMC-GREAT Abstracts Special Issues
The Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress (MEMC) is jointly organized by the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM), the Global Research on Acute Conditions Team (GREAT), the Mediterranean Academy of Emergency Medicine (MAEM), and has a deep commitment to the global development of our specialty around the Mediterranean basin, and indeed around the world. We endorse workplace fairness, residency training, and lifelong education in emergency medicine. All patients should have access to care by qualified emergency physicians and systems of care. MEMC is an opportunity to share the very best practices from high-resource countries with mature systems, countries that have recently achieved specialty status, and low-resource countries delivering care even in austere environments.

Our Philosophy

Emergency Medicine is a specialty which closely reflects societal challenges and consequences of public policy decisions. The emergency department specifically deals with social injustice, health and economic disparities, violence, substance abuse, and disaster preparedness and response. This journal focuses on how emergency care affects the health of the community and population, and conversely, how these societal challenges affect the composition of the patient population who seek care in the emergency department. The development of better systems to provide emergency care, including technology solutions, is critical to enhancing population health.
