How to Submit a Healthcare Simulation Webinar’s streamlined clinical simulation webinar platform was relaunched in February, and has since featured even more informative and insightful healthcare simulation presentations. These webinars offer live and on-demand content from some of the world’s leading healthcare simulation experts, covering everything necessary to successfully start, develop or expand a clinical simulation program. To continue to host webinars that highlight the latest and greatest across healthcare simulation, welcomes webinar presentation submission. This article details how to submit a webinar.

To begin, presenters should visit the HealthySimulation presentation submission page, which provides all the important highlights about the presentation submission process as well as the forms necessary to get started (should take approximately 10 minutes). After reading’s Terms of Submission, presenters will simply submit the required information. Ultimately, will host, record and distribute its Zoom webinar to the global medical simulation community.

Presenter information required includes their name, credentials, title, institution/company, email, a short biography and a headshot. The submitter should also provide their LinkedIn, Twitter and website URL to help the healthcare simulation audience connect with them directly. To complete the submission process, the presenter must include an abstract, a one-sentence summary, three learning objectives, the suggested learner level, an intended category and suggested tags. Here’s how the process breaks down:

  1. Read’s Terms of Submission policy which covers how:
    –  The presenter maintains ownership of presentation intellectual property (IP).
    –  The presenter has rights and permissions to grant a non-compensating global license to receive, promote, host, record, market and distribute their presentation.
    –  The presenter can request to have their presentation removed at any point with 30 days’ notice.
  2. Create and submit the presentation abstract materials through the form on this page. Presenters do not need a subscription to submit a presentation.
  3. Schedule two dates and times that would work best for the presenter to record the presentation to a live audience.
  4. Share an invitation to a professional network to join in for the webinar.
  5. Record the presentation (once it has been accepted) via’s Zoom Meetings account.
  6. Replay the presentation to colleagues all over the world with ongoing reminders to’s global audience.

Upon completion, the presenter will receive an email notification that their submission was received, and will follow up shortly thereafter with the date and time selected for their live presentation. The presenter will then be sent an “instructors calendar invite,” which they can forward to others who may be interested in attending the webinar presentation. Then here are the general connection instructions:

  1. Connect to the Zoom meeting link on the calendar invite tomorrow morning at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start time. The presenter will be muted when they enter. They can unmute themselves when ready.
  2. will have the recording paused at that time.
  3. will make the presenter a co-host, at which point they can share their presentation screen. They should make sure to check the box “Share computer audio” if their presentation has any video/audio components.
    –  If they need to leave their presentation PowerPoint for a video or other media load, they will need to share that entire desktop, not just the presentation window. will only be looking at their presentation, then sharing just the presentation window will be best so as not to have to worry about anything on their desktop.
  4. will test for audio and sound.
  5. would rather activate the presenter’s physical video camera too on top of their presentation so people can see them talk while they give the presentation. If that is not possible, do not worry. It just helps people connect with the presenter, but we are primarily interested in recording their presentation window.
  6. People can come into the meeting earlier so presenters should mind words, but they will be muted.
  7. will begin sharply at the indicated start time and will begin the recording after a brief introduction of the presenter.
  8. The chat will be up and will be monitoring the window for any questions.
  9. will introduce the presenter using parts of their supplied bio, and then they can immediately start into their presentation, which will have the first slide already up, leaving the final five to 10 minutes for Q&A.

5. The Promise of Virtual Reality in Healthcare: Presented by Todd Maddox, Ph.D., this one-hour, intermediate webinar discusses the promise of virtual reality (VR) as an effective education and training tool in healthcare. Maddox reviews the neurobiology of learning and performance and shows that VR broadly engages multiple learning and performance systems in the brain in synchrony. This “spreads the wealth” of educational and training opportunities across the brain while simultaneously “reducing the burden” on cognitive processing systems in the brain.

4. Building and Sustaining a Statewide Clinical Simulation Alliance: Presented by KT Waxman, DNP, MBA, RN, CNL, CENP, CHSE, FAONL, FSSH, FAAN, this one-hour, intermediate webinar outlines the steps to building a sustainable simulation alliance. This information is modeled after the California Simulation Alliance (CSA), which was formed after the success of the Bay Area Simulation Alliance in 2008. The purpose of the alliance is education, research and policy for its subscribers, and members have written white papers available to all simulationists. The CSA has seven regional simulation collaboratives in the state and over 4,000 members. The organization’s model has been replicated in other states and countries and is sustainable with no grant funding because we have several revenue sources.

3. MedVision’s Leonardo: Hands-on Look at the World’s Newest Adult Patient Simulator: Presented by Simulation Technician Bradley Chinwing, BS, this one-hour, beginner webinar shares what sets MedVision’s Leonardo healthcare simulation manikin apart in the market. The presentation also includes information on how his ease of use, software and technology makes simulationists’ lives easier. Chinwing provides a product overview and deep dive into the technology that makes Leonardo a new game-changer in the market. This includes a head-to-toe demonstration of the manikin that highlights his realism, versatility, software ease of use, servicing and durability.

2. Using Medical Simulation to Intentionally Probe Healthcare Systems: What’s It All About?: Presented by AnneMarie Monachino, DNP, RN, CPN, CHSE-A, NPD-BC, this one-hour, intermediate webinar explains how healthcare simulation can serve as a vehicle for the evaluation of system-based processes. This is because system-focused simulation, also referred to as process-oriented simulation, can be accomplished through simulation-based clinical systems testing (SbCST), and simulation-based hospital design testing (SbHDT).

1. EU Simulation Resources From the SESAM Organization: Presented by Dr. Marc Lazarovici, MD, this one-hour, beginner webinar highlights SESAM 2021, the first fully virtual conference held by the Society for Simulation in Europe, SESAM. This event was designed to provide many opportunities to learn, virtually meet colleagues and have fruitful discussions. This was made possible through the choice of an innovative digital platform, an impressive speaker lineup and automatic translation to several languages. SESAM’s main goal was to bring the community together despite the pandemic, offering a platform to all those active in the healthcare simulation field.
