Can we ask a little bit of your time to improve the emergency letter?
We kindly ask you to help us to review the information in the emergency letter and the practical use of the emergency letter in your situation. We have made a questionnaire, aimed at getting your insights, whether you are a professional or a parent/patient. The questionnaire is available in Dutch (here) and English (here) only (for the time being). It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Thank you, in advance
If you have any comments, queries or suggestions, we appreciate it if you contact us. Your email will be received and if necessary distributed to specific members of the working group by the Dutch patient group for IEM, called VKS.
