Recommendations on informed consent for European Emergency Departments for Adults and Children

Informed consent to medical treatment is fundamental in both ethics and law. It is premised on the principle of self-determination as a fundamental human right and applies to every field of medicine. Informed consent is an important and challenging aspect of emergency medical care that ensures the protection of the right of patients to make informed decisions about proposed treatments and/or procedures. Even in emergency care situations, patients have the right to receive information about treatment options, so that they can make decisions about their care.

Extraordinary General Assembly

Dear EUSEM members,

Due to a new Belgian Code of Companies and Associations the By-laws have to be amended. The first vote on the amendments of the By-laws was planned for the last GA in Prague. Since there were not enough attendees to reach the necessary quorum, we have to call for a second General Assembly on on 14 March 2020, from 8:00 - 10:00 in NH Bloom hotel. The vote will be done by the members present or represented at this second meeting. 

Extraordinary General Assembly
