The following guidelines were agreed to during the Bárány Society business meeting on May 27th, 2014 in Buenos Aires.
Every subcommittee will have a chair designated by the Classification Committee of the Bárány Society (CCBS). The chair of a subcommittee should be a member of the Bárány Society and report to the CCBS. He/she will compose his/her own subcommittee group according to the following guidelines:
No more than 12 months should elapse from the designation of the coordinator to presentation of first proposal to the CCBS. Each paper will undergo an internal review and consensus process for ICVD Publications in the Journal of Vestibular Research (JVR).
The work of the various subcommittees will be submitted for publication to JVR after the final approval by the CCBS. The members of the subcommittee will be listed as the authors, with the chair as the first author and will include the addendum “on behalf of the CCBS.” This is according to the model of the Symptom classification paper.
After publication of its definition, the subcommittee is dissolved. The revision and possible updating of the definition will be done according to the same procedure as described above. All members of the previous subcommittee are eligible for the revision subcommittee.
To establish the definitions all available types of evidence should be taken into account: clinical description, pathophysiology, vestibular tests, imaging, treatment results, genetics, epidemiology, etc. and should retain what is essential for the disease definition.
Currently, the following vestibular disorders and topics are addressed in subcommittees:
A series of consensus documents is finished or currently under development by the Committee for the Classification of Vestibular Disorders (ICVD) of the Bárány Society. To see a list of these documents, please click here.
As mentioned above, all finalized documents of the CCBS are published open access in the Journal of Vestibular Research.
