The Forum Rettungswissenschaften is an annual scientific congress organized by the German Society for Paramedic Science e. V. ( DGRe ). It is aimed equally at German and English-speaking researchers.
The Rettungswissenschaften are the German-language counterpart to Paramedicine or Paramedic Science of the English-speaking world. They are the reservoir of paramedical research and research with a focus on the ambulance service by other scientific disciplines.
In order to take this multidisciplinarity into account, we see the Forum Rettungswissenschaften as an extremely open event. Researchers of every discipline and every level are called upon to submit their findings in or about paramedicine in order to share them with the community in paramedic science. Whether humanities, social, economic, health, or medical science, whether an empirical project in paramedic school, bachelor’s or master’s thesis, Ph.D., funded or free research project, everyone will have the space to participate in and present at 2. Forum Rettungswissenschaften. The forum provides the opportunity for networking and the exchange of current scientific findings relating to rescue services.
After the first research conference in 2021, the German Society for Paramedic Sciences decided that this format will take place annually in the future. This decision was accompanied by a name change. The “Symposium zur Förderung der Wissenschaft im Rettungswesen” became the Forum Rettungswissenschaften.
The next, the 3rdForum Rettungswissenchaften, will take place in Münster in April 2023.
