Help research in paediatric emergency medicine moving forward!

Are you willing to contribute to a valuable study and to help increasing our understanding of children presenting to emergency departments in the time of Covid-19?

This interesting and promising research project, the “EPISODES study” (Principal Investigator: R. Nijman, Imperial College London) has been developed in collaboration with the EUSEM and will look to collect paediatric data from emergency departments from across Europe. It will focus on how the patterns of presenting problems of children in the ED, and how the delivery of emergency care to the paediatric population have been influenced by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

This is a great opportunity for you to participate in an international research group. You will be asked to provide anonymous, retrospective, and aggregated data for your institution and to complete a survey detailing your local health care delivery.

You can find more details and the description of the study here.

How many pandemics do we need, to make clear that EM should be a specialty all over the world and that we need more doctors, nurses and services
