Now through Feb. 18, 2018, AARC members will have the opportunity to share their input regarding newly revised Position Statements as well as an issue paper that is set to be retired. The AARC publishes position statements and issue papers to promote patient safety, quality care, access to respiratory therapy, and cost control. The Position Statements and Issue Papers Committee recently reviewed three AARC Position Statements and one AARC Issue Paper, and is making the following recommendations:
Position Statements – Committee Reviewed and Recommends Revision*
*To help members know what items have been added or removed, new language is bold face and underlined and removed language appears as
Position Statement – Committee Reviewed with No Recommendation for Revision
Issue Paper – Committee Reviewed and Recommends to Retire
In accordance with the AARC Policy Statement CT .008, members are invited to review these statements and provide comments.
Please take a few moments to review each statement. If you have any comments to share with the committee, complete our online form (found below) by Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018. Your feedback will help ensure the final statements represent the practice and position of the respiratory care profession.
