INSPIRE launches collaborative agreement with the International Simulation Data Registry!

INSPIRE has recently launched a collaborative agreement with the International Simulation Data Registry (ISDR). The ISDR collects and archives outcomes data from Cardiac Arrest, Malignant Hyperthermia, and Difficult Airway simulations for benchmarking, quality improvement, and research purposes. All INSPIRE affiliated programs are invited to join.  If interested, please contact Aaron Calhoun ([email protected]) or Matt Kurrek ([email protected]).
