Position statements

Position statements are statements that reflect the opinion of the SIR concerning areas of clinical practice and/or technologies that are evolving.  Position statements are evidence-based whenever possible, but since they usually address a developing clinical practice or technology, the body of evidence may be smaller and an independent panel of experts, usually multi-disciplinary, may be convened for document development.
