Journal of Neurosurgery Features the “One Neurosurgery Summit Professionalism and Harassment Model Policy”

The Journal of Neurosurgery Publishing Group (JNSPG) and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons are pleased to announce publication of the “One Neurosurgery Summit Professionalism and Harassment Model Policy” on March 23, 2021, in the Journal of Neurosurgery.

This Policy is designed to provide participants at neurosurgical meetings, educational courses or conferences with a safe, collegial experience devoid of incidents of harassment or insensitivity.

The Professionalism and Harassment Model is accompanied by an article, “Developing a professionalism and harassment policy for organized neurosurgery”, by Ellen L. Air, MD, PhD, FAANS, and colleagues, which provides background for the creation of the One Neurosurgery Summit and the development of the Professionalism and Harassment Model Policy. The article offers a gateway to the Policy, which can freely be accessed online via the article or directly on the JNSPG website.
