The CNS Foundation proudly supports the development of New CNS Guidelines. As a leader in education and innovation, the CNS recognizes high quality, evidence-based guidelines as a critical tool to confront a rapidly changing health care environment. The CNS supports an infrastructure, including robust, methodological processes to produce high-quality evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.
