Support for the people of Turkey and Syria
In the early hours of 6th February 2023, a magnitude 7.8 quake struck near the Southern Turkish border with Syria, causing devastation on a barely imaginable scale. WHO has declared it one of the worst natural disasters this century.
At times of such unimaginable pain and suffering the true strength of the human spirit is revealed in those who selflessly seek to help to relieve suffering. This has been exemplified by many including the superhuman efforts of rescuers, acting without fear for their own lives, whose actions have doubtless saved countless lives and in the tireless efforts of those working in the front line of healthcare who, despite the loss of friends and family, continue to work in extremely challenging circumstances.
Our thoughts remain with all those affected, especially our Emergency Medicine colleagues working in the region. We are truly proud to have you as our colleagues and wish to assure you of our continued support.
The next stages of this disaster will continue to challenge the people of Syria and Turkey, and those providing ongoing medical aid, shelter and support to the countless number of people injured and made homeless.
Our thoughts go to the families of our colleagues who have lost their lives due to this earthquake. We continue to offer our support to all those affected in Turkey and Syria and wish continued health and strength to our Emergency Medicine family.
If you wish to support the emergency effort please consider a donation to EMAT or one of the official Aid agencies working in the region.

European 112 day
On February 11 EUSEM celebrates European 112 Day! This day was established in 2009 and dedicated to raising awareness of the European emergency number 112. It is a day to recognise the work of all those who contribute to the European emergency services chain #112 #EMERGENCYMEDICINE #EENA
Management of patients with suspected COVID-19 in European EDs; an EUSEM Research Network study
Best practice in the management of COVID-19 patients is still changing, and the management of infected patients in the emergency department (ED) presents distinct problems as compared to other specialties. Now, emergency medicine researchers from across Europe have found that patients who were admitted to the ED and had a confirmed COVID-19 infection were in a more critical clinical situation than those who had a suspected COVID-19 infection that was not confirmed subsequently. The study1, the first on this scale in Europe to examine this issue from the emergency physicians’ point of view, was carried out by members of the EUSEM Research Network2 and published in the Journal of Personalized Medicine.
SUPPORT EMERGENCY MEDICINE DAY TODAY!
FILL IN THE EM-DAY SURVEY FOR PROFESSIONALS
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.
YOUR SAFETY - OUR PRIORITY
We strongly believe it is of the utmost importance that we can provide concrete data to the relevant stakeholders to reflect our distress and how this can threaten our safety and that of our patients.
We therefore would like to invite you to respond to the following 40 questions, based on a validated survey, about the safety of emergency care in your ED. We hope you can support the EM-Day with 10 minutes of your time.
In parallel to this survey we are sending a questionnaire to patients’ organisation and to individual patients, with the hope that the results of the three surveys will describe the situation in an unequivocal way.
The results of these surveys will be published on the EM day and will be circulated to media and politicians.
