ACEP Board-approved policy statements highlight the scope of issues being addressed in emergency medicine. New policies are initially distributed to ACEP members via Annals of Emergency Medicine and posted here. In addition, the ACEP Board of Directors has directed that all policy statements undergo automatic review when they are five years old. Unless a policy still contains relevant information, it will then sunset. Due to the extensive time required to review five year old or older policies, some are still under review.
