Abstract

Delivery of acute care services at every level of the health system is essential to ensure appropriate evaluation and management of emergent illness and injury in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The health services breakout group at the 2013 Academic Emergency Medicine consensus conference developed recommendations for a research agenda along the following themes: infrastructure, implementation, and sustainable provision of acute care services. Based on these recommendations, a set of priorities was created to promote and guide future research on acute care services.
