Development of the AANS/CNS joint Section on Tumors: challenges and opportunities
- 109 Downloads
Over the 30 years since the formation of the AANS/CNS Section on Tumors, the breadth and scope of our activities have continued to expand. An initial focus on education and collaboration between those members of the neurosurgical community dedicated to the care of patients with neurological tumors has broadened to include development of international relationships, participation in clinical trials and efforts to define standards of care and quality metrics. As we navigate the rapidly changing environment of health care, the Section on Tumors will occupy a central role in promoting advocacy, establishing collaboration, providing education, and supporting research for the community of neurosurgeons dedicated to the care of patients with neurological tumors. This article will provide an update and status report on the development of the Section on Tumors, followed by a brief discussion of the challenges and opportunities emerging at the onset of our fourth decade of service.
