Task Force on General Neurology
As an initiative of Professor Claudio Bassetti, current EAN President and Chair of the Task Force, the EAN General Neurology Task Force was established in autumn 2021. Time and experience have shown that a specialised task force on the topic of general neurology has its right to existence because there is an insufficient number of general neurologists and there are clear differences on definitions and practices among countries. General neurology should be at the focal point when dealing with complex cases so as to provide the most precise clinical diagnosis. Of course, the role of general neurologists is to better the lives of patients – therefore the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) has nominated a representative. Young general neurologists are naturally represented by a delegate from the Resident and Research Fellow Section (RRFS).
The initiatives so far:
- Defining general neurology
- Surveys on general neurology, incl. RRFS survey
- Training and curricula
- Research and academia
- Future of general neurology
