Building a nationwide communications network
To promote the best possible patient care, ASET has undertaken the mission to create and maintain a nationwide network of collaborative information sharing among neurodiagnostic professionals, students, and other related medical and allied health professionals. The vehicle to achieve this mission is the Grassroots Campaign.
The four components of the Grassroots Campaign are:
- Increase and improve intra- and intercommunication among local, state and regional neurodiagnostic societies and ASET, and develop collaborative and mutually supportive activities and programming
- Provide resources and support to local technologists who have an interest in forming and developing a neurodiagnostic society in states where no local society currently exists
- Build a nationwide communications network by conducting a “census” of all individuals in the field performing neurodiagnostic testing
- Disseminate critical information quickly through the nationwide communications network on such “Hot Topic Communications” as state legislative and regulatory actions that may have an impact on the profession, affect the ability to practice, or qualify testing for reimbursement.
We need your help in building the communications highway across our nation so that it reaches every state and every individual performing neurodiagnostic testing, whether it be electroencephalograms, evoked potentials, intraoperative neuromonitoring, long-term monitoring, nerve conduction studies, and/or polysomnograms. To help, please stand up and be counted by taking part in the neurodiagnostics census
. The census is not a marketing gimmick to prospect for members. It is a tactic to identify all individuals performing neurodiagnostic testing in order to lend a stronger voice in the advocacy for the neurodiagnostic profession and to rapidly disseminate information on current topics and emerging issues of interest to the profession.
Stand Up and Be Counted
