GENERATE SOPs

The GENERATE network drafts standard operational procedures for diagnostics and therapy of patients with autoimmune encephalitis in Germany. Ultimate goal in harmonising procedures is to improve patient care and facilitate scientific analysis of data. These SOPs are being drafted by designated members of the GENERATE network, circulated with all members and published online.

SOP Standard imaging in autoimmune encephalitis version 1 15-02-2016

SOP Standard neuropsychoilogical diagnostics in autoimmune encephalitis version 1 22-02-2016

Further SOPs are being drafted.
