ESE Focus Area Update:
Calcium and Bone
Calcium and Bone: the latest advances
Focus Area Updates provide the endocrine community with news, upcoming activities and developments in their areas of interest. The Calcium and Bone Focus Area Update has been developed by the ESE Focus Area on Calcium and Bone.
This edition outlines the progress so far with the ESE PARAT Programme, as well as providing an update on the development of an emergency card in hypoparathyroidism. In addition, we highlight some of the available content from ECE 2019, which you can view through ESE On Demand.

ESE PARAT Programme gathers pace
The PARAT Programme aims to bring parathyroid experts together to identify and address unmet needs in the treatment of parathyroid conditions.
Following the 1st and 2nd Expert Workshops, the PARAT Steering Committee are working to develop a programme of activities to address priority areas and challenges.

Unmet therapeutic, educational and scientific needs in parathyroid disorders
In September 2019, a Consensus Statement was published in the European Journal of Endocrinology.
Written by the PARAT Steering Committee, chaired by Jens Bollerslev, Norway, this publication summarises and discusses recent achievements in the fields of primary hyperparathyroidism, parathyroid cancer and hypoparathyroidism.
Standardised emergency card for patients with hypoparathyroidism
According to a recent ESE supported study, 87% of patients with hypoparathyroidism felt that emergency cards would be highly useful.
ESE is now planning to work with national endocrine societies and hypoparathyroidism patient groups across Europe, to ensure that patients have access to a standardised emergency card.
ESE continues to support patient-led initiatives to improve clinical care and quality-of-life.
