Neuropathies

Aims of the Scientific Panel on Neuropathies

  • To prepare proposals / organise Symposia, Teaching Courses and Focused Workshops for the annual congresses.
  • To establish Task Forces for the development and revision of Guidelines.
  • To help coordinate clinical research to improve diagnosis, management, and treatment of peripheral neuropathies.

A Joint Task Force of the former EFNS and the Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) has just revised Guidelines on management of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy, paraproteinemic demyelinating neuropathies, and multifocal motor neuropathy, which had been first published a few years ago. These Guidelines are published in the 2nd edition of the European Handbook of Neurological Management.

The Scientific Panel on Neuropathies collaborates with the International Inflammatory Neuropathy Consortium (INC), a standing committee of the PNS, and with the EAN Scientific Panel on Neurogenetics and EAN Scientific Panel on Pain

Several members of the Scientific Panel on Neuropathies collaborate as co-investigators in an International Audit of the EFNS/PNS Guidelines on management of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy and  multifocal motor neuropathy, led by Dr. Yusuf Rajabally (Leicester, UK). Thanks to the support of a Grant from the EFNS (September 2011), an international web-based audit is carried out to evaluate awareness about and compliance to these Guidelines in the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Italy, The Netherlands, Serbia, and possibly Hungary and Poland.
