HAEi friends in many countries cite the need for significant improvement in emergency room care for people with HAE. Because education is the key to better emergency care, HAEi has prepared a poster with important information on recognizing HAE and successfully treating an emergency.
To ensure the most widespread use of the poster, it is to be translated into as many languages as possible. At this point, it exists in for instance English, Spanish and Arabic – and over the coming months, it will turn up around the world in many local languages.
There are three versions of the poster. The first is a standard poster with HAEi contact information and logo, while the second has the same information with space to include the national member organization’s logo and website or other contact details. Thirdly there is a fully customizable poster. This version is without the HAEi watermark and logo and can thus be customized by the member organization.
Over the last few months, member organizations have been in contact with hospitals and clinics in their country to present the poster and encourage them to use the poster within the emergency rooms.
Production of the poster takes place locally as HAEi emails a print-ready file for the poster to the member organization, who then sources a local company to print the poster. Distribution is managed either as hand-delivered or by mail, in both cases via the member organization.
Established member organizations with funding sources are requested to fund printing, postage or delivery. In contrast, patient groups without a funding source can have their print expenses covered by HAEi. However, if version three of the poster is chosen, the member organization will be covering all costs for customization, printing and distribution.
The emergency room poster files are available in three sizes:
- A2 (420mm x 594mm)
- B1 (500mm x 700mm)
- Poster Size Large 609.6mm x 914.4mm
Option 1: The original standard poster with HAEi contact information and logo.
Option 2: The original standard poster with space to include the member organization’s logo and website or contact details. The example is with the HAE Scandinavia logo and information.
Option 3: A fully customizable poster without the HAEi and logo. The poster can be fully customized by the member organization.
