As it stands, there are very few groups in APAC who are committed to establishing best practice protocols and guidelines for this region. INSA was created to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and exchange of ideas, whilst also taking into account observational lessons from the U.S as to how we can best regulate practitioners of intraoperative neurophysiology.

INSA represents a new era for existing and future members of this society. We have a brand new executive council from three states in Australia, as well as a senior neurophysiologist and functional neurosurgeon in Singapore. We meet on a monthly basis to keep each other accountable during ‘Phase One’ of this society, and have a proven track record for managing clinical practice, research, academia and contributions to society. We were nominated and voted-in because we represent the wider interests of the intraoperative neurophysiology community – one that we hope is more inclusive of it’s diversity going forward.

INSA membership will grant you access to a plethora of online educational material curated specifically for this society. This includes lectures from international and local neurosurgeons, spine surgeons, neurophysiology scientists, anaesthetists and legal experts. The goal of our online education system is not to overload members with exhaustive content, but to cater to potential gaps in knowledge where people can benefit from actual practical insight. Aside from the educational platform, there are quarterly online meetings with special guests, access to the wider INSA member network for collaboration, and resources to promote original research.

Online those with full membership have voting rights for various items raised at the AGM, however input from associate, student and international members of course will be taken into consideration.

From time to time, there will be limited accessibility or previews of educational content. We’ve included a wider spectrum of professionals when designing the membership tiers to enable the vast majority to meet the criteria to register.

Absolutely. The executive council intended to host an AGM in 2020 and we had almost locked-in flights for our keynote speakers from Europe and the U.S! Once the global situation settles, we will be hosting a very special conference. In the interim, and in addition to the online educational content, we are in preliminary discussions to host satellite meetings in various countries.
