The Inspire program is designed to provide a flexible, consistent and resource efficient mechanism for clinicians to learn how to use the Vortex Approach. It consists of online components, supplemented by interactive face-to-face sessions. The online components can be undertaken independently by individuals while the face-to-face components require someone to coordinate their delivery for a group of clinicians using the educator resources provided. Note that Inspire in isolation will not provide competence in emergency airway management and should only be undertaken in combination with existing accredited airway training programs.
