Quality Measures

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

Measure Opportunities

The American Academy of Neurology and American Headache Society are partnering to update the Headache Quality Measurement Set. Neurologists, advanced practice providers, and care team members are needed to form a standing work group. Interested parties should review the scope of work and submit an application by August 7.

Learn about the newly released Dementia Management quality measurement set update.

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.
