Join us for a breakfast presentation with Dr Martin Than. Martin is Director of Research at Christchurch Hospital Emergency Department. He has a specific interest in evidence-based healthcare and the safe rapid translation of research findings into clinical practice. His work focuses on cardiac biomarkers and acute coronary syndrome. Martin has led two randomised controlled trials on the benefits of using accelerated decision-making pathways for patients being assessed for possible ACS. This has resulted in the implementation of rapid chest pain assessment pathways into every hospital throughout New Zealand, doubling the number of patients safely discharged from the emergency department within six hours.
