Canada's SIMone Ontario Simulation Expo Starts Early-Bird Registration
Early-bird registration has opened for Ontario Canada’s SIMone expo — which has been called Canada’s “largest gathering of simulation champions” and is taking place this year in Toronto December 4th and 5th.
SIM-one—the Ontario Simulation Network—is a not-for-profit organization that connects the simulation community, facilities, resources and services across the Province of Ontario. SIM-one advocates for and advances simulated learning in health professions education for the benefit of patient care and patient safety. Supported in part by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care (MOHLTC), SIM-one’s vision is to further position Ontario as the global leader in healthcare simulation. SIM-one provides valuable services to the healthcare simulation community, including education and training, research grants, the SIM-one website, and networking events such as the annual Ontario Simulation Exposition.
