During this time he held this position of Deputy Head or Head of the Department of Clinical Neuroscience of the King’s College London School of Medicine and was also the Coordinating Editor of the Cochrane Neuromuscular Disease Review Group.
The Scientific Committee advises the Management Board of the EFNS on scientific matters, including offering advice to the Programme Committee and the Editors of the European Journal of Neurology. Its principal task is overseeing the activities of the Scientific Panels. During Professor Hughes’s Chairmanship, the Scientific Committee took on the task of developing the EFNS guidelines further. They developed and published guidance for the development, referring and dissemination of the guidelines. They initiated, undertook the peer review of and edited 40 guidelines. These were finally collected into the European Handbook of Neurological Management edited by Professor Hughes himself with Professor Michael Brainin from Austria and Professor Nils Erik Guilhus from Norway. Professor Hughes was also Vice President of the EFNS from 2001 to 2005 and is currently President of the international Peripheral Nerve Society.
