ANZSNR has a tripartite agreement on guidelines for interventional neuroradiology (INR) training with the two other craft groups in Australia and New Zealand who also perform INR work. Neurologist INRs are represented by the Australian and New Zealand Association of Neurologists (ANZAN). Neurosurgeon INRs are members of the Neurosurgical Society of Australasia (NSA). INR representatives from the three groups came together in 2014 to form the Conjoint Committee for Recognition of Training in Interventional Neuroradiology (CCINR). The CCINR have published a document, "Guidelines for Recognition of Training in Interventional Neuroradiology (INR)" which is now in the public domain. The CCINR website can be found at ccinr.org.au
In the next few months CCINR will establish a register of Australian and New Zealand INRs who have met the guidelines for INR training.
ANZSNR welcomes this initiative, which will help to safeguard patients from untrained or undertrained operators.
