Clinical Practice Guidelines

In partnership with the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses (AANN), the ABTA created nursing clinical practice guidelines for treating adults and children diagnosed with brain tumors. These guidelines give healthcare professionals the tools they need to deliver the best possible patient care.

Care of the Adult Patient

The goal of the clinical practice guidelines is to help nurses provide consistent and evidence-based care for adult brain tumor patients and their families, from diagnosis throughout the trajectory of the illness. Topics include:

  • Epidemiology
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Emergent care
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatments, including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy
  • Symptom management
  • End-of-life care
