Newfoundland SimSummit Starts This Week By Royal College of Surgeons Canada
Taking place later this week in NewFoundland Canada is the Simulation Summit, a conference connecting healthcare simulation champions and vendors together. Are you participating in the conference, tweet to us @HealthySim and share your favorite moment!
The Simulation Summit is a unique and practical, interprofessional medical simulation education conference, which attracts hundreds of international simulation educators, researchers, health care professionals and other individuals engaged in the field of simulation.
The 2016 conference theme, Extreme Simulation, will explore simulation research, learning and practice in a spectrum of contexts and settings, from hospitals and university teaching centres, to rural and remote locations.
Participants at the 2016 Simulation Summit will have the opportunity to collaborate with international colleagues on knowledge translation as it relates to simulation in healthcare; examine new technologies in medical simulation; investigate advances in medical simulation and much more.
Participants at the 2016 summit will:
- Collaborate with international colleagues on knowledge translation as it relates to simulation in the health professions.
- Investigate advances in medical simulation for health profession in the realm of assessment and education
- Examine new technologies in medical simulation for health professions; and
- Plan to integrate medical simulation for health professions across the education spectrum from students to practitioners.
