ACEM Collaborations

EMUGs and ACEM have had a close working relationship over the years which was solidified by the establishment of the ACEM/EMUGs Collaboration Working Group in  2020. 


This group works on projects such as the co-development of ED US Clinical Leader Resources among other things.

POCUS Development Discussions

These meetings are a collaborative discussion with fellow ultrasound enthusiasts in a relaxed and friendly forum. 

They cover topical and relevant themes such as research, education trends, department ultrasound program development and technological developments.

Meetings are held live or online, as either stand alone events or as part of larger EMUGs events

POCUS leaders in our volunteer community actively advocate and lead the way with the uptake, integration and development of the utilisation of POCUS in critical care settings.


EMUGs encourages anyone with an interest in advancing the use of POCUS to get involved in our initiatives.
