Ongoing Member Research Project:
We are clinicians/researchers from Canada and the UK and are investigating:
1. The range of practice for Motor Evoked Potentials (MEPs) in Intraoperative Monitoring (IOM); and 2. How this varies across the world.
We should be very grateful if you would spare 5-10 minutes to complete an online survey on this subject. The survey can be reached via the link below (click or copy and paste into browser): https://newcastle.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/meps-in-iom-final
Please forward this e-mail to colleagues working in the field.
