The EFNS Scientist Panels and ENS Subcommittees aim at coordinating different facets of clinical research and good neurological practice at European level. They will play a very important role in the European Academy of Neurology – EAN. We invited the chairpersons of the EFNS Scientist Panels and ENS Subcommittees for their view on the future role of these panels/subcommittees within the EAN.
Neuropenews: Briefly outline the future role you see for your scientist panel/sub-committee within the European Academy of Neurology.
The neuromuscular panel in the future plans to collaborate both with patient’s Associations and with Neuropenews to give full diffusion to guidelines and e-learning or teaching activites, as well as treatment or diagnostic progresses.
Neuropenews: How can Neuropenews contribute and enhance the work of your panel?
The EAN should promote contacts with other neuromuscular specialists, not only from major centers and countries but also from small emerging countries i.e Romania, Estonia, Slovakia etc… so we can involve them not only in teaching activities but also in European joint projects of research. Another issue would be to promote other types of SESSIONS to be organised at the meetings i.e. case or slides discussion, confrontation of ideas, controversies in Neurology, advances in neurosciences etc.
