The ABN RaDAR is a platform to facilitate ascertainment and research recruitment in rare neurological disorders. Participating ordinary and associate members of the ABN, who are currently working in the UK, receive a monthly email listing the conditions being sought. If the ABN member has seen one of the conditions over the preceding month, they should indicate the number of patients seen via the form on the RaDAR section of the ABN website, which will then be followed up by the study's investigator(s).

The work of the notifying doctor is kept to an absolute minimum. The email also contains a clickable hypertext link to be used by the email recipient if they have not seen any of the conditions under surveillance over the preceding month.

COVID-19: The ABN requests that all members track suspected neurological complications of COVID-19 infection. These may be short-, medium-, or longer-term neurological symptoms or conditions. Please report immediately using this link.
