The objectives of the European Reference Networks (ERN) are to:
- share expertise,
- improve diagnosis,
- educate and train patients, care providers and doctors,
- produce guidelines,
- build databases,
- develop connections to facilitate research,
- perform clinical trials on rare endocrine conditions,
- disseminate results to patients, health care providers (HCPs) and public health organisations,
- link up with other ERNs.
ESPE in collaboration with the European Society for Endocrinology (ESE) have worked together to establish a European Reference Network for Rare Endocrine Disorders (EndoERN). If you are interested in any aspect of the EndoERN are advised to contact Olaf Hiort or Alberto Pereira.
