Grant Innes Research Paper and Presentation Award – CAEP 2014

Congratulations to Dr Paul Atkinson and his team for winning the Grant Innes Award at CAEP 2014. A fantastic achievement for the SHOC-ED 1 study interim analysis to be judged the top Emergency Medicine research paper in Canada this year. The competition was very strong with over 400 entries, including the top research centers of Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver. It was a proud moment to see the research from Saint John, New Brunswick win the top prize.


To asses the impact of a PoCUS shock protocol (ACES) on survival and key clinical outcomes in patients presenting to an Emergency Dept with undifferentiated shock. This planned interim analysis of 142 patients has shown no difference in either 7-day or 30-day mortality between the PoCUS and control groups. There may be some early diagnostic benefits and more patients are required to definitely answer the study question.

Here is the award presentation

A great stimulus for us all to get recruiting!
