The American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) is pleased to announce the publication of the “Guidelines for Qualifications of Neurodiagnostic Personnel: a Joint Position Statement,” available now on the Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology (JCN) website and appearing in the upcoming May 2023 print issue.
The position statement is the result of a collaborative effort by ACNS, with the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM), the American Society of Neurophysiological Monitoring (ASNM), and ASET—The Neurodiagnostic Society.
The quality of patient care is optimized when neurophysiological procedures are performed and interpreted by appropriately trained and qualified practitioners. The position statement suggests job titles, associated job responsibilities, and the recommended levels of education, certification, experience, and ongoing education appropriate for each job and matches training, education, and credentials to the various tasks required for performing and interpreting neurodiagnostic procedures.
Congratulations to the many authors involved in publishing this incredible resource!
