Depoimentos - Simon Finfer

I was very excited to hear of the launch of the Brazilian ICU registry (www.utisbrasileiras.com), such registries are an essential tool to improve patient care and serve to increase the profile of intensive care as a specialty with the public and with politicians and funding agencies. Around the world registries such as ANZICS CORE and ICNARC in the UK have been essential in improving patient care, gaining political recognition for our specialty and providing data to enable world class research. I would encourage everyone in Brazilian ICUs to support this except initiative.
