Eleven INSPIRE institutions across the world have begun the in-hospital QCPR Leaderboard competition, with an international group of simulation educators and researchers examining how in-hospital practitioners approach simulation-based CPR skills training when given the opportunity to measure performance against others.

This is a randomized, cross-over study spanning 1.5 years.  We are looking for additional hospitals around the world to participate, and our next join date is February 2016.   And come hear our story and presentation at INSPIRE @ IMSH 2016!

We revised the timeline to begin 10.01.2015 (October) and to contract the phases to 4 months each.

  1. Please contact me as we are keen to join the study – Paediatric ward with infant QCPR mannequin. The submission form seems to have an error & will not allow me to submit.

    1. Thanks for the note, Dr H-G. We will contact you in the next 24-48 hours. We are working on a welcome packet with information on the study, joining, expectations, and scholarly work products / authorship criteria.
