The Neurostimulation Appropriateness Consensus Committee (NACC) Guidelines: Update

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM CST Saturday, January 16

The NACC Guidelines are authoritative international consensus-based practice guidelines to inform clinicians regarding the safe and effective practice of invasive neurostimulation. The NACC 2017 guidelines were divided into three major sections: bleeding risk, infection risk, and prevention of neurologic injury. NACC 2021 is currently convening and is in the process of updating the 2017 guidelines. This session will provide the latest updates on neuromodulation risk mitigation practices and strategies.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Describe the NACC guideline process, provide an overview of NACC 2017 and plans for NACC 2021.
  • Explain bleeding and anticoagulation risks and risk mitigation strategies associated with interventional neuromodulation procedures.
  • Identify infection risks and risk factors and infection risk mitigation strategies associated with interventional neuromodulation procedures.
  • Discuss the major factors that contribute to minimizing the risk of neurologic injury.
