Canadian Society for Medical Lab Science to Host Upcoming Webinar on Affordable Simulation
The Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) is the national certifying body for medical laboratory technologists and medical laboratory assistants, and the national professional society for Canada’s medical laboratory professionals. They are a not-for-profit organization that is funded entirely by membership dues and revenues from goods and services. Their members practice in hospital laboratories, private medical laboratories, public health laboratories, government laboratories, research and educational institutions. Incorporated in 1937 as the Canadian Society of Laboratory Technologists, the society has over 14,500 members in Canada and in countries around the world.
The organization both works with regional and national governments to improve training requirements to utilize healthcare simulation, and also supports various healthcare education institution’s with their utilization of medical simulation technologies.
In collaboration with CSMLS, the Simulation Knowledge Exchange – Research Network consists of representatives from 13 academic organizations with medical laboratory science programs (MLT and MLA) from across Canada. These individuals share a common interest in creating profession specific research and evidence based information on simulation and clinical placement topics. Together, they aim to increase a national understanding of these through research and knowledge transfer activities, and are using simulation to do it. Here’s an upcoming webinar from them….

Also in the mean time you can download their report entitled “Simulation-based learning in Medical Laboratory Education: Perspectives and Practices” which outlines a research project implemented by the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) and funded by Health Canada. The project was intended to provide the foundations for an evidence base for simulations in medical laboratory education and to identify gaps in evidence in order to inform educational practices, policy- and decision making processes, and potential directions for further research.
