22 September 2017 Kyoto, Japan
Hosted by Prof Nakagawa
Meeting Convenors: Prof Nakagawa and A/Prof Kennerson
The second AOINC meeting held in 2017 in Kyoto Japan welcomed additional countries from the region. Countries attending the inaugural meeting were joined by representatives from China and New Zealand. The key outcome was the agreement of members on a minimum dataset for each country to standardise collection of patient information. The minimum dataset form developed and used by the Inherited Neuropathies Consortium (INC) was suggested as a template for AOINC and after agreement with the INC this form will be used. The program included speakers from the region as well as a member from the INC who spoke of the shared global resources available to accelerate the AOINC goals for scientists and clinicians.
