Congreso Federación Latinoamericana de Simulación Clínica y Seguridad del Paciente: October 30th – November 1st in Cancun, Mexico
In 2007 the Latin American Society for Simulation in Healthcare (ALASIC) was founded by members from different Northern, Central and South American countries with the idea of building collaboration and networking from across the continent. In 2017, the FLASIC organization was born from ALASIC to act a federation of smaller regional simulation societies, which now maintains almost 1,000 members from 7 different societies who can collaborate and share via an online network. Every 2 years FLASIC holds its biennial conference with the 2019 being held in Cancun this October 30th to November 1st. The event will host workshops, lectures, posters, and an exhibit hall, all in an all inclusive hotel right near the beach! Keynote speakers include José Maestre from Spain, speaking on simulation faculty development, Marlova Silva from Chile speaking on simulation implementation, Roger Daglius from Brazil speaking on clinical simulation innovation, and Grl. Dr. Octavio Ruíz from Mexico speaking on leadership in healthcare simulation.
