Our Vision

Improved patient outcomes through the universal practice of focused ultrasound in acute care settings.

To support clinicians to perform and integrate high quality ultrasound in acute care.

Why?

Our Purpose

EMUGs is a grassroots organisation built by a community of committed POC/focussed ultrasound users, collaborating to enable best practice in the utilisation of focused ultrasound in clinical care.

We achieve this through in person and online meetings, workshops and events, collaboration with industry stakeholders and special projects and outreach initiatives all of which enable our purpose and move us closer towards our vision.

 

Our community is primarily Emergency Doctors and Sonographers though we welcome other emergency service providers, GPs and POCUS users from other specialties. 

The organisation was founded in 2015 by a small group of NSW Emergency Physicians, mainly Dr Brian O'Connell, Dr Genevieve Carbonetta and Dr Chris Partyka, and has since expanded into all states and territories of Australia and New Zealand.

 

EMUGs is supported by a small part time Operations Team who work closely with the dedicated volunteer community, including Central Council and Regional Teams, to coordinate an inspiring calendar of educational events and collaborative projects. 

 

EMUGs is guided by a team of Honorary Advisors who form another part of the collective of industry leaders that allows EMUGs to make an impact in the POCUSphere.

 

It’s the unwavering passion and efforts of our community who share their expertise and energy that makes EMUGs unique.

 

Our sponsors are also an integral part of our success, ensuring our community remains up to date with the latest in POCUS technology.
