Mapping Endocrinology in Europe

As part of its mission to shape the future of endocrinology, The European Society of Endocrinology (ESE) is actively engaging with policy makers to improve the professional outlook of the endocrinology discipline and the care of patients with endocrine disease.

At present there is no European wide understanding of the impact of endocrinology and the value of the endocrinologist; this is needed in order for us to represent and protect our discipline. ESE is therefore launching an ambitious project ‘Mapping Endocrinology in Europe’, during which the opinions, facts and data derived from as many endocrine professionals as possible, with clinical and/or research orientation, will be collated. This will enable there to be an accurate evaluation and communication of the present value and future needs of endocrinology, and to identify future areas that ESE’s policy and advocacy strategy needs to address, on our behalf. 

In November 2018, ESE completed a survey to map ‘endocrinology’ in terms of health care providers, diseases covered and impact on European healthcare, as well as the present situation and future needs related to endocrine research. The results from this survey will be used, alongside a thorough needs assessment to further validate the areas of policy and advocacy to focus on.

We thank those who took part in this survey.

This survey is now closed

Results of the survey were made available at the finalisation of the project and have been instrumental in informing the development of ESE's White Paper .
