Endo-ERN Special Collection
Endocrine Connections is excited to announce that it is publishing a new special collection in collaboration with the European Reference Network on Rare Endocrine Conditions (Endo-ERN). The collection forms part of the Network's 5th year celebrations. All articles included in the collection are open access, making them freely available to access online.
The articles in the collection focus on topical issues including patient transition from paediatric services, genetic testing, virtual consultations and tools to improve healthcare for patients with rare endocrine diseases.
The special collection is edited by Senior Editor George Mastorakos (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens), and Guest Editors Violeta Iovtova (Medical University of Varna) and Jerome Bertherat (Hôpital Cochin).

Endo-ERN aims to improve access to high-quality healthcare for patients with hormonal disorders. Endocrine conditions are often complex and require a long period of care due to chronic disease without being life-threatening. Therefore, endocrine care requires equal distribution of paediatric and adult care. Endo-ERN aims to provide this care for patients throughout their entire lives and to reduce and ultimately abolish inequalities in care for patients with rare endocrine disorders in Europe, through facilitating knowledge sharing and facilitating related healthcare and research.
