In response to member requests, your AAOA Board of Directors
recently adopted the following Clinical Care statements. These statements are also being distributed in our
AAOA Today, membership newsletter. We would like to acknowledge the tireless efforts of our Clinical Care statement workgroup that made this compendium of work happen.
Our intention is to assist otolaryngologists by sharing
evidence-based summaries on recommended therapies and practices from the
current medical literature. They do not
attempt to define a quality of care for legal malpractice proceedings. They should not be taken as recommending for
or against a particular company’s products.
The Clinical Care Statements are not meant for patients to use in
treating themselves or making decisions about their care. Advances constantly occur in medicine, and
some advances will doubtless occur faster than these Clinical Care Statements
can be updated. Otolaryngologists will
want to keep abreast of the most recent medical literature in deciding the best
course for treating their patients.
You can download and print the Clinical Care Statements compendium as a whole or each statement individually.
