CAE HPSN UK and Ireland 2023

CAE Healthcare now known as Elevate Healthcare has promoted the Human Patient Simulation Network (HPSN) conference to healthcare simulation champions for many years. HPSN was founded in 1997, and has grown from a small community of pioneering nursing and health science educators into a robust and global network of medical faculty, clinicians, students, and technical experts who gather throughout the year to interact, share knowledge, and explore the latest innovations in simulation-based medical education (SBME). The events are open to anyone with an interest in healthcare simulation. This article discusses the HPSN UK & Ireland 2023 and where to learn more about upcoming 2024 HPSN events!

HPSN UK & Ireland 2023 is an international conference focused on advancing the practice and innovation of healthcare simulation for educators, technologists, nurses, doctors, midwives, allied health, patient safety leads and other healthcare practitioners. Attendees can make valuable connections, experience exciting keynotes and attend special events. HPSN UK & Ireland 2023 will occur December 13-14, 2023 at the Double Tree Hilton in Nuthall Road, Nottingham, England. The general admission is £10.00.

Keynote: Right Technology, Right Place, Right Time Presented by Emily Browne, Midlands Air Ambulance

Emily Browne is a nurse who worked (and still does when possible) in emergency care. Currently she is the Head of Education and Training at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. Emily was previously the Associate Dean for Innovation and Enterprise at Staffordshire University, leading on the development of simulation-based education, including the development of the simulation facilities and educational pedagogy.

Emily spent 10 years in the RAF Reserve with an aeromed deployment to Afghanistan in 2013. It is the experience in the RAF reserve that sparked Emily’s love of simulation-based education.
