Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM) Launches New Advances in Simulation Journal
Advances in Simulation provides a forum to share scholarly practice to advance the use of simulation in the context of health and social care. Advances in Simulation publishes articles that cover all science and social science disciplines, all health and social care professions and multi- and inter-professional studies. The journal includes articles relevant to simulation that include the study of health care practice, human factors, psychology, sociology, anthropology, communication, teamwork, human performance, education, learning technology, economics, biomedical engineering, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, therapeutics, scientific computation, simulation modelling, population studies, theatre, craft, program evaluation and more.
All articles published by Advances in Simulation will be made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers.
The Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM) was founded in 1994 in Copenhagen and aims to encourage and support the use of simulation in health care and medicine for the purpose of training and research. Key roles of SESAM are to develop and support the application of simulation in education, research, and quality management by facilitating collaborations and the exchange of technology and knowledge throughout Europe.
