Emergency Cards

The European Society of Endocrinology works with patient organisations to identify areas of greatest need for patients and to work with them to address these.

For some endocrine conditions, it is possible for situations to occur where emergency treatment is required. In these situations, it is vital that healthcare providers are informed of the patient’s relevant medical background immediately, to ensure that the patient receives the correct treatment.

Emergency cards or medical bracelets, highlighting relevant information about a patient's medical requirements, are a useful way of making essential information available in a timely fashion.
