Welcome to our healthcare resources page where we share medical industry information resources related to Intraoperative Neurophysiologic monitoring.
Updated frequently, medical resources cited may include links to published articles, medical associations, healthcare blogs, health news sites, and other websites of interest.
There are numerous professional organizations that provide enormous value to many aspects of our profession including:
American Society of Neurophysiologic Monitoring is the national professional and scientific society for Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring in the United States. Its membership is diverse and encompasses the driving innovation behind techniques and standards for the profession of Intraoperative Monitoring. The “sister” credentialing board of the society is listed below.
American Board of Neurophysiologic Monitoring is the professional credentialing board for Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring. Their credential is the DABNM and it certifies those with a master’s degree and higher to both interpret and supervise Intraoperative Monitoring.
American Society of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists (ASET) is the technical society for both intraoperative monitoring and the wider scope of Electroneurodiagnostics Technology. The American Society of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists, Inc. provides leadership, advocacy and resources that promote professional excellence and quality patient care in electroneurodiagnostics. As a membership organization, ASET advances the field by serving member needs; defining and endorsing standards of practice; providing innovative educational opportunities; promoting the profession; and building coalitions in allied health and other communities of interest.
American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET) seeks to encourage, establish and maintain the highest standards of clinical Electroencephalography, Evoked Potential Technology, and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative and Long Term monitoring, by offering credentialing exams to evaluate the skills and knowledge of technologists, and by supporting lab accreditation.. ABRET is the national credentialing board for Electroencephalographic (EEG) Technologists, Evoked Potential (EP) Technologists, Long Term Monitoring (LTM) Technologists, and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring (NIOM) Technologists, awarding the credentials R. EEG T., R. EP T., CLTM and CNIM. ABRET has been focused on the competency and evaluation of technologists serving the electroneurodiagnostic community and patients for over 45 years. ABRET credentials are internationally recognized and endorsed by the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) and the American Society of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists (ASET).
American Academy of Neurology (AAN) supports neurologic research, scientific inquiry, information sharing, and quality education. For neurologists, the peer-reviewed weekly journal Neurology(R), self-study publication Continuum, and other offerings promote lifelong learning and enhanced patient care. Patients, families, and caregivers draw inspiration from the Neurology Now magazine and get facts about neurologic disorders and treatments from evidence-based guideline summaries and clearly-written education books. From the exam room to the living room, the AAN offers print and online resources for everyone.
The International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN) has members operating in 58 countries globally. In so doing, the main goal of the IFCN is to strive to promote education and the attainment of the highest level of knowledge and understanding in the field of Clinical Neurophysiology.
The American Association of Electrodiagnostic Technologists (AAET) originated in San Francisco, California, in 1974, and was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1985. “We have established an examination committee and provide the only recognized national certification examination. This certification examination and its recognized credibility by the practicing Electrodiagnostic consultant, guarantees to the employer that the technologist so hired, is a certifiably knowledgeable, competent, and qualified professional in the field of nerve conduction studies, as part of electroneurodiagnostic technology.”
The goal of The International society of Intraoperative Neurophysiology (ISIN) is for the pursuit of the advancement and excellence in intra and perioperative neurophysiology by:
- Conducting regular meetings of the ISIN and joint meetings with related societies (neurosurgery, cardiovascular surgery, orthopedic surgery, ETN surgery, endovascular radiology, anesthesiology, neurophysiology…)>
- Providing education in Intraoperative Neurophysiology by:
regular courses and conferences
- Promoting research in Neurophysiology
- Representing Intra and perioperative Neurophysiology in the world
- Advancing standards of care for patients undergoing surgical procedures associated with significant risk of neurological
The American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) is a professional association dedicated to fostering excellence in clinical neurophysiology and furthering the understanding of central and peripheral nervous system function in health and disease through education, research, and the provision of a forum for discussion and interaction.
