PARAT: An ESE Educational programme on Parathyroid Disorders
PARAT Web Hub
Provides information on what parathyroid disorders are, along with the PARAT aims and scope, its governance structure, the expert faculty who make up its steering committee, working groups, PARAT community and how it is financially supported.
Provides information and the outputs from all previous and future PARAT events including workshops, webinars, educational courses, plus publications such as summary reports and peer-reviewed consensus articles.
Provides a suite of self-managed medical education opportunities to view, interact with or download, designed to improve your understanding of parathyroid disorder diagnosis, management and treatment recommendations.
In 2017, ESE conceived an ambitious four-year programme to develop further consensus recommendations and strategies that would promote best clinical practice around parathyroid disorders. A key objective was to improve access to this information through the delivery of high quality medical educational activity via events, publications, enduring materials and other learning experiences.
As the programme gathered momentum, it focused more specifically on identifying and making recommendations on how to alleviate a number of unmet educational needs in the areas of:
- Primary Hyperparathyroidism
- Hypoparathyroidism in Adults
- Preconception, pregnancy and lactation
Through the collaboration of 100 leading parathyroid experts from over 20 countries in the past four years, the PARAT programme has completed multiple inter-connected activities that have led to the community establishing 33 expert recommendations on how to best diagnose, manage and treat parathyroid disorder patients.
The expert recommendations have been translated into a variety of accessible, resource formats which are available for free within the following areas of the PARAT web hub.
