Knowledge within the field of disaster medicine forms the basis of the preparedness of the health care system for disastrous events. Research in disaster medicine is associated with both every-day health care and patient care, and preparedness for extreme events. 

Research performed at the Centre for Teaching & Research in Disaster Medicine and Traumatology (KMC) is multidisciplinary and includes both basic research and research aimed at strenghtening the complete trauma chain. This means research on prevention and preparedness, the accident site and pre-hospital care, and patient care and rehabilitation. The key word for research at KMC is multidisciplinarity, and the research has a basis in identified needs where the patient is central to the research question. 

KMC at Linköping university is placed under the Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine. KMC is responsible for disaster preparedness on the regional level of the county of Östergötland.
