This year the Emergency Medicine Day campaign is dedicated to safety. Safety for our patients, who need care, attention and relief from pain and disease. Safety for our colleagues, who need to be able to work in a secure environment, for the right number of hours with the right number of patients in order to be able to give them the right amount of our time and energy.
Only in these conditions are we sure to provide the patient with a safe haven in an emergency
We are asking to fill in this survey, whether you are an EM professional, a patient organisation or a patient, and let us know about your experience in the hospital emergency department. With the collected data we will address the managers and administrators to change their policies.
The EM-Day taskforce has written a policy statement about minimal standards for safe working conditions in Emergency Medicine. It is published in the European Journal for Emergency Medicine. Share it as much as you can so it will be noticed by our policy makers!
What does Emergency Medicine mean to you? We want to hear experiences from patients, nurses, physicians to explain the importance of EM.
Write an opinion piece, record a video, share EM-day on your website and in your newsletter, contact a local journalist. Check the materials that can help you on your mission i.e. press release, poster template, logos and more.
Write to your political parties and explain we need their commitment to take action to protect Emergency care for the patients.
to create your social media post and your posters to promote your activity, your thoughts or to show your support.
