On the occasion of the Emergency Medicine Day that will take place on 27 May, we want to discuss and draw the attention of the media and politicians to the question of safety and quality in hospital emergency departments (EDs).
In order to do this we are collecting the points of view of emergency department professionals, patient organisations, and patients.
Recently there have been many reports in the general media of critical problems related to ED overcrowding, long waiting times and the increasing burnout of personnel. This situation may become really dangerous, and therefore we feel it is necessary to provide hard data in order to attract attention.
As patients’ organisations we are asking your board, or a representative of it, to respond to this short survey and provide us with information about your views and feelings on this issue.
Confident in the understanding of your organisation of the importance of this issue, we thank you for your collaboration.
YOUR SAFETY – IS OUR PRIORITY
The results of these surveys will be published on the EM day and will be circulated to media and politicians.

The surveys will close on the 27th February
If your organisation has a network of patients and/or other relevant stakeholders, please help us in disseminating the surveys for the different targetgroups so we can get as many responses as possible.
