International Guidelines and Minimum standards Endorsed by CNSSA

The Clinical Neurophysiology Society of South Africa promotes the use and implementation of universal standard guidelines for performance and reporting of all diagnostic procedures or monitoring performed in our field of practice.

At the 2022 Annual General Meeting a proposal was adopted to review and endorse universally accepted International guidelines with the aim of developing South African versions for inclusion in the professional scope of practice documents.

The Society urges all Clinical Neurophysiology practitioners to strive toward implementation off and, adherence to, the below minimum practice standards for recording and reporting of EEG and EDx procedures as endorsed by our Member Societies, IFCN and ILAE, and similarly recognised professional bodies.
