NSF May 2020: Evolution of the Science of Practice Volume 48, Issue 5

Neurosurgical Focus covers a different topic in-depth each month. Enhanced by color images and video clips, each peer-reviewed issue constitutes a state-of-the-art “textbook chapter” in the field of neurosurgery. 

While Neurosurgical Focus is open-access and has been free to the public since 1996, claiming CME credit is free only for AANS members. Each monthly issue offers 3 credits - earn up to 36 CME annually.

Upon completion of this CME activity, participants should be able to:

  • The participant will develop a better understanding of the evolution of the science of practice from single center to registry based efforts using multicenter, prospective observational databases.
  • The participant will develop a greater knowledge of sophistical statistical techniques and artificial intelligence algorithms for analyzing multicenter databases in neurosurgery.
  • The participant will learn about the implications of the science of practice on quality improvement, comparative effectiveness research, payer negotiations, and board certification.
  • The participant will gain a greater appreciation of how data analysis as part of the science of practice can generate new knowledge about the effectiveness of care and refinement of neurosurgical operative indications.
