Welcome to the Emergency Medicine Events Register (EMER)

EMER is an adverse event and near-miss reporting system that is peer-led, online, anonymous and confidential. It is a means of supporting improvement in safety and quality in emergency medicine by understanding of contributing factors and how the risk of harm to patients can be minimised or prevented.


For more information please click here to watch the EMER video "Learning from our errors - Emergency Medicine Events Register".


The EMER is supported by ACEM and managed by the Australian Patient Safety Foundation (APSF). The College encourages members to enter incidents to the database. CPD points can be claimed for reports submitted.
