Clarity and comprehensiveness of recommendations

Comprehensiveness of the document

Comment Period Closes October 8, 2016

The AAN is committed to developing guidelines and evidence-based documents that incorporate patient and caregiver perspectives in a meaningful way. 

In addition to the draft manuscript of the full guideline provided for review, there is an accompanying summary version for lay stakeholders, such as patients, caregivers, and advocates, who wish to provide feedback.

This guideline manuscript draft and accompanying public summary are made available at this time only for the purpose of obtaining comments from professionals and public stakeholders. Because these documents are not in their final, publishable form, we ask that you maintain discretion by refraining from publishing, posting, disseminating, or otherwise releasing the contents of these documents until further notice is received from the AAN.
