This report summarises the presentations and discussions of the workshop on the neurological brain disorders, held at the European Parliament in Brussels on Wednesday 12 October 2016. The aim of the workshop was to provide background information about the main characteristics of neurological brain disorders, as well as to identify new strategies and innovative tools to better support the prevention and treatment of these diseases. The latest data, trends, and challenges in the field of neurological brain disorders were highlighted during the first part of the workshop. Moreover, speakers illustrated how mHealth tools can better support treatment for patients affected by brain disorders. Successful examples of mHealth tools, such as the app “MyDystonia”, were also presented. The second part of the workshop focused on the potential offered by mHealth for patients with neurological brain disorders. Relevant initiatives carried out by the European Commission were presented, and the importance of involving patients in the designing of new mHealth tools for the treatment of brain disorders was also discussed. This workshop and the respective document were prepared by the Policy Department A at the request of the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.

Protection of Vulnerable Adults

08-09-2016

While benefiting from the freedom of movement and residence in the European Union (EU), vulnerable adults often face legal difficulties when in a cross-border situation as a result of the lack of solid legal protection. This is due to the different protection schemes operating in the EU Member States, and the incomplete international legal framework, creating legal uncertainties in the Europe-wide protection of vulnerable adults. This European Added Value Assessment identifies weaknesses in the existing ...

While benefiting from the freedom of movement and residence in the European Union (EU), vulnerable adults often face legal difficulties when in a cross-border situation as a result of the lack of solid legal protection. This is due to the different protection schemes operating in the EU Member States, and the incomplete international legal framework, creating legal uncertainties in the Europe-wide protection of vulnerable adults. This European Added Value Assessment identifies weaknesses in the existing legal framework for the protection of vulnerable adults in cross-border situations, focusing on the most important international legal instrument in the field: the Hague Adult Protection Convention of 13 January 2000. The Assessment goes on to outline potential legal measures which could be taken at the EU level and which would generate European added value through simplification and transparency of the legal framework in this area.    

Zika virus outbreak: Update on developments

07-04-2016

The Zika virus continues to spread, and there is now strong evidence that it is linked to birth defects and neurological complications. Warnings to pregnant women against travel to affected areas have been stepped up. In view of the summer season, the risk of local transmission in Europe now needs careful consideration, as do the strategies to control the mosquito species that are potential vectors of the Zika virus. This 'At a glance' notes updates an earlier edition, of 25 February 2015: PE 577.988 ...

Zika virus: Stepping up preparedness

25-02-2016

The rapid spread of the Zika virus, and especially its suspected link with an observed increase in congenital malformations and other neurological complications, has created worries. The response strategy globally, including in the EU, is taking shape. Where do we stand?

Need for action on dementia recalled

12-02-2016

Dementia is one of Europe's biggest challenges in the context of demographic change. It has wide-ranging social and economic consequences for those living with the condition, their families and carers, and society as a whole. The Council's conclusions of December 2015 acknowledge the importance of this challenge. Dementia is not one specific disease, but an overall term for a syndrome that affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language and judgement ...

Dementia is one of Europe's biggest challenges in the context of demographic change. It has wide-ranging social and economic consequences for those living with the condition, their families and carers, and society as a whole. The Council's conclusions of December 2015 acknowledge the importance of this challenge. Dementia is not one specific disease, but an overall term for a syndrome that affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language and judgement. There are many different causes and forms of dementia. The condition remains little understood, and there is currently no cure. Action to tackle dementia is centred on its prevention, early detection and timely diagnosis, and on improving the quality of life of those living with it through care and support. Research focuses on the causes and possible treatments, on better care and prevention, as well as on developing assistive technologies. The European Commission has published a communication on dementia, undertaken various activities and funded research. A European Parliament resolution from 2011 called for dementia to be made a health priority. Major global dementia initiatives include a G8 declaration, the creation of the World Dementia Council, and the first Ministerial Conference on 'Global Action Against Dementia', hosted by the World Health Organization. Civil society is also actively involved.

Multiple Sclerosis and employment issues

20-05-2015

Multiple Sclerosis is a neurodegenerative disease. It affects over 600 000 people in Europe, but the treatment and support that Multiple Sclerosis sufferers receive varies widely depending on where they live. It is mostly diagnosed between 20 and 30 years of age, frequently at the beginning of a professional career. People suffering from Multiple Sclerosis may require flexibility and specific facilities from the employer given the unpredictable and variable nature of the condition.

Neurodegenerative diseases in the workplace

03-07-2013

Hundreds of thousands of working-age Europeans suffer from neurodegenerative diseases (NDD) such as Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. With an increase in retirement age and in life expectancy, the number of both NDD patients and carers of working age is expected to increase in the coming decades.

Proceedings of the Workshop on "Treating and Living with Epilepsy"

15-11-2011

The underlying causes of epilepsy are still largely a mystery: it is not yet clearly understood why some people are born with a disposition towards epilepsy and others not. An estimated 15 million people in Europe today will develop epilepsy at some point in their life. At present, up to 40% of Europeans with epilepsy do not receive adequate treatment. The Workshop on Treating and Living with Epilepsy was held by the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI), and it followed ...
