Abstract

As medical educators strive to adopt an evidence-based, outcomes-driven approach to teaching, education research in emergency medicine (EM) is burgeoning. Many educational challenges prompt specific research questions that are well suited to investigative study, but educators face numerous barriers to translating exciting ideas into research publications. This primer, intended for educators in EM, provides a brief overview of the current scope and essential elements of education research. We present an approach to identifying research problems and conceptual frameworks and defining specific research questions. A common approach to curricular development is reviewed, as well as a fundamental overview of qualitative and quantitative methods that can be applied to educational research questions. Finally, suggestions for disseminating results and overcoming common barriers to conducting research are discussed.
