The online Urban Dictionary defines “get ‘er done” as a redneck phrase meaning to go ahead and complete a task and Yahoo answers says it is a phrase used in the military meaning don’t waste time, no matter how difficult the task, just do it and get it done. After reading the Global Perspectives section of this week’s Neurology, I think there can be no better adjective to describe the RIO GBS-ZIKV Research Network than to call them a get ‘er done team. This multidisciplinary group of self-funded clinicians and researchers in Rio using low cost technologies, like WhatsApp for group communications, have organized themselves into a lean, mean Zika fighting machine. While authoritative global health organizations are still trying to agree upon basic definitions (what IS microcephaly?), team RIO has developed standardized data collection instruments, protocolized treatment strategies and streamlined referral and triage procedures all while also collecting foundational data on the neurologic manifestations of Zika Virus in Brazil. Don’t miss what promises to be the first of many interesting reports from this inspiring group.
