ASPHO Endorsements of Clinical Guidelines, Policies, and Position Statements
From time to time, ASPHO is asked to review and endorse materials developed by other organizations. Such materials are first screened for eligibility and then an ad hoc review panel is appointed to conduct an expert review with recommendations for board action.
In the case of policies of the American Academy of Pediatrics, or those submitted to the AAP for review, a joint ASPHO-AAP subject matter expert review process is in place which provides consolidated recommendations on behalf of both organizations. These documents provide guidance to pediatric hematology/oncology professionals in caring for their patients.
Recent ASPHO endorsements include:
American Society of Hematology 2018 Guidelines for Management of Venous Thromboembolism: Treatment of Pediatric Venous Thromboembolism
Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation: Standards for the Psychological Care of Children with Cancer and their Families
The American Association of Ophthalmic Oncologists and Pathologists (AAOOP) Consensus Report on Screening Children at Risk for Retinoblastoma
