RiM 2016: What People Are Saying

Congratulations on RIM – I only wish I could have been there for more of it. You have accomplished something quite unique, and on multiple fronts:  extraordinary research, a great model of interdisciplinary collaboration, and an amazing approach to education and mentorship.” – John Marshall, MD, University of Toronto, St Michael’s Hospital

“It feels very personal, like a large family gathering. This encourages participation from everyone. It also gives the feeling that participation is wanted, unlike most other meetings. This actually can help building a resuscitation community (as opposed to just stroking the egos of those who think they are the community).”  – Senior Scientist, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“I have attended every RiM meeting and it is always an interesting affair with great ideas about what is going on. “ – Eric Barton, HSF Volunteer Regional Mission Chair, and Retired Paramedic

“It was a great meeting and I loved the spirit and its character. I will most certainly ask young folks to submit abstracts next year.”  – Demetris Yannopoulos, MD,  University of Minnesota

 “RiM is a very focused meeting with fantastic opportunities to network. It provides a very relaxed atmosphere where it’s easy to talk to very senior researchers.”  – Graduate Student, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“This meeting is in the top 10% of those I attend regularly.” – Senior Scientist, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“This was my first time at RiM and I really enjoyed it. The meeting is small-ish and interactive, which helps facilitate engagement.” –  Fellow, Queens University, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“RiM is innovative and unusual. The format works surprisingly well. It certainly keeps things on time. I like the blend of new researchers presenting their stuff with a sprinkling of senior researchers presenting on their research.”  – Senior Scientist, via Survey Monkey

“The experience was lovely.  RiM is a great, unstressful opportunity to connect with other scientists and mentors in a way that doesn’t happen at other meetings.”  – Young Investigator, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“RiM supports engagement between participants. It ignited my enthusiasm and passion for the field of resuscitation and it has certainly had a great impact on my thinking and enabled me to develop some wonderful new collaborations (and friendships too!). Thank you to all involved for such a great conference. Well done!”  – Senior Scientist, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“Keynote by Richard Price [Pulsepoint] was a highlight of the conference. Lots of excitement here and beyond about PulsePoint generated by his talk. I was asked to describe my experiences with PulsePoint by a group in India (emergency call centre) the other day because of a contact through the RIM conference. Word is spreading around the globe.”  –  Steve Brooks, MD,  Queens University

“RiM is the by far the best networking meeting I have attended.” – Graduate Student, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“Such a pleasure and a privilege to be part of this spectacular initiative. Congratulations for another exceptional meeting.” – Sandro Rizoli, MD, University of Toronto, St Michael’s Hospital

“This is a very innovative and interesting meeting compared to others on the circuit.” – Young Investigator, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“RiM is a great conference and a great example of collaborative learning. Thanks for including me.” – Douglas Campbell, MD, University of Toronto, St Michael’s Hospital

“RiM promotes much greater focus on interaction & novel methods of knowledge translation. The Pecha Kucha format is a much better way of driving presenters to fully prepare (vs. read) their presentations.”  – Young Investigator, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“An outstanding meeting!  Very good for networking opportunities.”– Keynote Speaker, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“RiM is definitely on par with other high quality events on the scientific meeting calendar.”  – Young Investigator, Industry, via Survey Monkey evaluation.

“This meeting is top of the peak. Couldn’t be better.” – Senior Scientist via Survey Monkey evaluation

 “RiM exceeded all my expectations. Amazing organization, collaborative approach, fantastic content, wonderful networking.”  – Graduate Student, via Survey Monkey evaluation

I feel fortunate to work with Laurie Morrison and her great team and I look forward to many, many more years of exciting and fun collaboration.” – Damon Scales, MD, University of Toronto, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre

“I enjoyed the new content presented at RIM. The abstracts were, in many ways, more valuable to me then the plenary sessions.”  – Graduate Student, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“A superbly organized meeting with excellent energy and exceptional opportunities for young researchers and presenters. Great for the future.” –  Cardiologist – anonymous via Survey Monkey evaluation

“This meeting just keeps getting better each year. Excellent quality…cutting edge research and young investigators in the spotlight. Keep building the momentum.” – Senior Scientist, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“I really like the format and the way it encourages collaboration and training. It is a unique and valuable conference.” – Senior Scientist, Industry, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“RiM is a novel and fun and very educational meeting.” – Graduate Student, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“RiM is easy to attend and great value for the cost.” – Paramedic, Management, via Survey Monkey evaluation

“This meeting generates more ‘good will’ energy than any of the other regular meetings I attend. It makes me want to reach out and collaborate which I suppose is what this meeting is meant to achieve.”  – Senior Scientist, via Survey Monkey evaluation
