The European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA), together with the European Academy of Neurology, have launched a survey to determine the impact of COVID-19 on neurology service delivery.
Many surveys have captured the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on patients’ access to treatment and care. The aim of this survey is to better understand how care pathways were reconfigured for the neurology patient community during the first wave of the pandemic. It will capture recommendations to ensure that any future changes to service delivery are made in the interests of the patients – rather than, solely, in the interests of the healthcare system.
The survey will allow neurologists across Europe to understand the views of their patients to the approaches adopted during the pandemic, learnings which can be applied in the future delivery of care. Sharing your experience will allow us to better understand what worked well, but also where improvements need to be made.
This data will be used to inform the future advocacy of neurology groups as they engage in the policy and decision-making that will inform the recovery planning.
The survey is open to anyone who is living with a neurological disorder and resides in Europe. It is available in 10 languages.
