WHAT IS THE EMERGENCY MEDICINE DAY?
27 May is introduced as the Emergency Medicine Day and promoted globally. The aim of this day is to unite the world population and decision makers to think and talk about emergency medicine and emergency medical care.
We believe it is important to build awareness about the need for well developed, well prepared and well organised emergency medical systems everywhere in the world to increase survival and reduce disability after any kind of urgent or emergent medical situation.
On 27 May, we encourage citizens, patients, health care personnel, and institutions all around the world to talk about emergency medicine and make projects for a year of progress in the discipline.
Where the specialty in emergency medicine is not yet developed, where emergency medical systems are not well structured, where competences are not standardized and certified, where resources for emergency medicine are insufficient, there should be a strong voice to ask and claim for a change, for a better life.
Because “competence makes the difference”.
