AANEM guidelines and consensus statements provide evidence based recommendations for the assessment and treatment of muscle and nerve disorders. Adherence to these documents will help ensure relevance, efficiency, cost effectiveness, and diagnostic accuracy in the practice of electrodiagnostic (EDX) medicine and quality patient care.

To develop these guidelines and consensus statements, AANEM works with physicians who specialize in neuromuscular (NM) and EDX medicine. They are developed, in part, to meet the demands of payers, accrediting bodies, and maintenance of certification and licensure programs, helping them determine the appropriate standard of care in NM medicine. If the resources you need are not listed below, please contact and our staff will help you find answers.

Creation of New Guidelines, Consensus Statements, or Position Papers
AANEM members are encouraged to submit ideas for papers that can improve the understanding of the field. The AANEM will review nominated topics on the basis of the following criteria:

  • Members’ needs
  • Prevalence of condition
  • Health impact of condition for the individual and others
  • Socioeconomic impact
  • Extent of practice variation
  • Quality of available evidence
  • External constraints on practice
  • Urgency for evaluation of new practice technology
