WINFOCUS Vision & Mission

The World Interactive Network Focused On Critical UltraSound (WINFOCUS) is the world leader scientific network committed to develop Point-of-Care Ultrasound practice, research, education, technology, and networking, addressing the needs of patients, institutions, services, and communities living in out-of-hospital and in-hospital critical scenarios. Our goals:

  • To identify critical scenarios where ultrasound, when implemented and incorporated into point-of-care, represents a critical added value to improve management, performance and outcomes;
  • To identify ultrasound “point-of-care” applications within extra-hospital and in-hospital scenarios, consistent with prevention, triage, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of the critical patient;
  • To identify the technical, clinical, organizational, and social competencies necessary for effective incorporation and diffusion of “point-of-care” ultrasound into critical scenarios, the methodology, technology, and instrumentation necessary for its implementation, and the feasibility, sustainability, and accuracy of the identified technologies;
  • To evaluate and compare the experiences of different investigators through networking actions;
  • To develop research projects and conferences;
  • To promote quality assured training programs, incorporating them, where appropriate, into school and university curricula.

The network plan is involving universities and aims to spread global ultrasound practice throughout all the critical scenarios, backing academically WINFOCUS worldwide action, delivering recommendations and guidelines for undergraduate and postgraduate ultrasound curricula, cooperating with universities in underserved regions for an overall enhancement of their curricula and educational activity.

RESCUE

The RESearch in Critical Ultrasound and Echocardiography (RESCUE) development plan is based on two initiatives: the UltraSound Evidence-Based Medicine (USEBM) group, designed to promote critical ultrasound research projects; and the International Liasion on Critical Echocardiography and UltraSound (ILCEUS), designed to develop International recommendations and guidelines for point-of-care critical ultrasound education, clinical practice, and technology development.

GLOBUS

The  GLOBUS (Global UltraSound) world initiative aims to make essential cost-effective primary ultrasound available worldwide throughout all the communities leaving in remote and scarce-resource scenarios, consistently to the Primary Health Care concept developed by the Alma Ata Declaration and the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
