Endorsed or Affirmed Guidelines

The American Academy of Neurology is approached by other guideline developers and asked to review and consider guidelines for endorsement. Guidelines that utilize a process substantially equivalent to the methodology utilized by the AAN will be considered for endorsement.

Guidelines developed by external organizations that utilize a methodology that is substantially different than that used by the AAN will be considered for affirmation of value. The AAN may not agree with every recommendation in such a document, but overall considers the document to be of educational value to its members.

Guidelines developed by external organizations that don’t clearly articulate their methodology and do not meet either of the above criteria will not be considered for endorsement or affirmation of value.
