Position statements are generated from within AAO-HNS/F committees. However, an individual member may request consideration of a topic for position statement development. If you would like to see if the Academy would consider developing a position statement on a particular topic, please email the details about the topic and your concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org. Academy staff will then route your email to the Chair of the appropriate committee(s) for consideration. The committee(s) will examine the need for a statement, draft the necessary position statement language, and Academy staff will present it to the Academy's Executive Committee and the Board of Directors for consideration. If the Board approves the statement, it becomes official and is added to the existing position statement library.
After an extensive review process by AAO-HNS Committees, Executive Committee, and Board of Directors, the Academy reaffirmed 10 position statements, revised 11, and released a new statement on Tongue Suspension. Updated and New statements can be found designated below.
