Results have recently been published of the European Federation of Neurological Associations’ (EFNA’s) survey ‘Assessing diagnosis and care pathways of people living with neurological disorders in Europe‘, which was developed with the aim of identifying, reporting and beginning to address the varied challenges facing all affected by neurological conditions, either as patients or caregivers, from diagnosis to care pathway.
The survey reveals the shocking fact that only 1 in 5 have access to affordable therapeutic interventions that adequately manage their condition.
Other key findings include that females are less encouraged to visit a doctor, while being more aware of their symptoms and more engaged in research. Men are shown to be less aware of their symptoms, less engaged in research and believe they have fewer therapeutic opportunities. Furthermore, our data highlights that the majority of those engaged in providing care are female (85%).
