Quality Measures

Improve the care of your patients by using the AAN's quality measurement sets, reporting initiatives, and other resources.

Measure Opportunities

Please comment on the draft neuro-oncology quality measurement set developed in partnership with the Society for Neuro-Oncology by December 29, 2016. The AAN needs your feedback to refine and improve the five draft measures before their release. Read the full measure specifications for details.

Be part of the process and submit an idea for a future measurement set or volunteer your time to be part of the next measurement development work group. All work group applicants are asked to complete a nomination and conflict of interest form.
