Join us and ask for more! This year we can’t gather together, and Emergency Medicine Day 2020 has not much on the map of impact to show for, since the world just has started to recover, slowly, from the Covid -19 lockdown. So, we have organized a Social Challenge:
If you are an Emergency Medicine professional:
On May 27 take a picture of your emergency job, real time, and post it with a phrase of support on this Facebook Event and on your Social media account with #emdaychallenge and #emergencymedicineday.
If you are a citizen, a patient, a person who believes that Emergency Medical system is important for you:
On May 27 take a picture of you or of something nice and post it with a phrase of support, on the Facebook Event and on your Social media account with #emdaychallenge and #emergencymedicineday.
In this time of coronavirus, emergency medicine physicians, nurses and technicians have been working round the clock to save lives and keep you safe. Where there are adequate staff members, where the specialty is led by trained emergency physicians, the reception and treatment of patients has been smoother and outcomes better.
On this day – 27th May – we are celebrating our specialty of emergency medicine but also asking our governments and you to support the request for more trained specialists, recognition in all European countries of the specialty status of our physicians and to resource all our departments with sufficient nurses, technicians and equipment to ensure we can keep you safe in any future pandemics.
For a better emergency care, Ask for more doctors, more nurses, more services.
Snap and post! #EmergencyMedicineDay
