Standards of Care for Children in Emergency Departments

EUSEM is endorsing the document: “Standards of Care for Children in Emergency Departments” written and published by members of the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Special Interest Group (PEMSIG) of IFEM, which involves some members of the EUSEM pediatric section. (PEM).

EUSEM carefully balanced the global need for these Standards versus the applicability in the European setting and the involvement of EUSEM (and its members) in the development. We recognised the careful editorial process and contributions from many leaders in the field that resulted in this excellent document. 


JOIN First Aid Guidelines

For the very first time, a set of common European-wide First Aid Guidelines has been successfully produced. Developed by an international team of experts, who form the JOIN Clinical Working Group, the Guidelines promote the importance of First Aid in daily situations at home, at work, and in daily life. They are designed to apply in every European country, also providing a solution to some cross-border health issues and helping to foster international cooperation.

The JOIN Guidelines are intended for First Aiders, the general public, as well as health professionals and, are available to all users for free. They are currently available in thirteen European languages: Dutch, English, Finish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Spanish, Swedish, and also Arabic.
