Special Interest Groups of the PNS
Due to the peripheral nerve system having vast specialties under its domain, the Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) allows special interest groups (SIGS) to form as a consortium under the Society. Each SIG is considered a standing committee of the PNS. To join a SIG, you must first join the PNS. There is no additional charge to join a SIG. On the PNS online application form you may select the special interest group(s) you wish to join. If you are already a PNS member, you may log in to your membership profile to update your SIGs. Current special interest groups of the Peripheral Nerve Society include:
Mission: To improve the life of patients with hereditary neuropathies by advancing care, promoting research and training of clinicians, basic scientists and other health professionals interested in inherited neuropathies. This will be achieved by focusing on three areas; care, research and education.
Mission: To cure diabetic neuropathy through promoting 1) research, 2) education and 3) high quality patient-centered care.
Mission: To improve the care and treatment of patients with inflammatory and immune-mediated neuropathies. This includes Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP), multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN), paraproteinemic demyelinating neuropathies (PDN), vasculitic neuropathies, and many other conditions.
Mission: Improve the life of patients suffering from painful neuropathies and related disorders through basic and clinical research, education and standards of care.
Mission: To increase and improve research and knowledge on toxic neuropathies in order to ameliorate the care and treatment of patients.
