PARAT: The ESE Parathyroid Programme
The ESE PARAT Programme aims to identify, define and plan the delivery of potential solutions to improve future outcomes and care for patients with parathyroid disorders.
Led by the ESE Focus Area on Calcium and Bone, PARAT will define the scientific and educational needs, and identify programmes and activities to address these.
Following the development of the ESE Clinical Practice Guideline on the Treatment of Chronic Hypoparathyroidism in Adults, there has been renewed interest in parathyroid disorders, with new developments in our understanding and the treatment options available.
PARAT will look to assess these developments, making recommendations and developing new strategies to promote best clinical practice and improve access to high quality, relevant educational resources.
The ESE PARAT Programme comprises a 4-year plan, encompassing expert meetings, educational materials, research activities and publications. The programme will be led by the PARAT Steering Committee, Chaired by Professor Jens Bollerslev (Norway) and supported throughout by the ESE Focus Area on Calcium and Bone and the wider parathyroid community.
