Quality Measures Open for Public Comment: Rhinoplasty Performance Measure

The American Academy of Otolaryngology —Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF) and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) have developed measures for rhinoplasty utilizing the AAO-HNSF Clinical Practice Guideline: Improving Nasal Form and Function after Rhinoplasty. We request your expert review and comments on the draft measures by June 29. You are invited to share this opportunity with peers and constituents. Comments are needed to improve the specificity and usability of the measures before finalization. The following measures require your attention:

  • Pre-surgical discussion of motivations and outcomes for patients undergoing Rhinoplasty
  • Airway assessment for patients undergoing Rhinoplasty
  • Shared decision making for postoperative management of discomfort following Rhinoplasty
  • Patient satisfaction with Rhinoplasty Procedure

These quality measures are not guideline statements, but instead objective measures based on existing guideline statements to evaluate the quality of care provided to patients with vestibular disorders.
