There is a wide gap between the goals of delivering efficient and effective neurologic care and the reality of daily practice. This SIG will facilitate conversation among researchers, clinician-scientists, policymakers, and students to build research skills and disseminate recent findings related to healthcare use, outcomes, quality, delivery, access, disparities, and economics. Improved knowledge in these areas will help attendees develop strategies to improve care and develop new policy initiatives.


  • Describe the health services research methodology for secondary data analysis.

  • Understand the policy implications for neurologic drug pricing.

  • Understand areas for improvement in neuropalliative care.
