The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) is currently working to update its clinical practice guidelines. These guidelines provide practice parameters for how to surgically modify the upper airway in adults with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). These guidelines have an important impact on standardizing physician practice and ensuring that patients get the best quality care.
AASM physicians are currently reviewing the scientific literature to update these guidelines; however, they also want to know what you think:
What do you think about surgical treatments for OSA?
What was your experience?
What are some of your concerns?
We are reaching out to you, MyApnea.Org patients, to see if you are interested in contributing to this project as a volunteer patient stakeholder. The AASM is looking for four volunteers, so get in touch soon if you are interested! Sharing the patient perspective will allow AASM to develop a clinical practice guideline that is useful to both physicians and patients.
Who can volunteer?
Who do I contact? If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I volunteer to be a patient stakeholder, what happens next?
