CNS Annual Meeting
The Washington Committee and Washington Office develop and promote organized neurosurgery’s positions on issues affecting the specialty. Through advocacy, policy development and public relations we work vociferously to defend and protect the ability of neurosurgeons to practice medicine freely —and to help ensure the continued advancement of the specialty of neurological surgery.
Organized neurosurgery has played a fundamental role in a number of health policy developments, including repealing the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), pushing for medical liability reform, advocating for adequate reimbursement, streamlining quality-improvement initiatives, and ensuring the preeminence of quality in neurosurgical education and training.
