IMSH: International Meeting for Simulation In Healthcare

Every year the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSiH), hosts the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in a major city of the United States. Dedicated to healthcare simulation research and learning, the event provides an opportunity for “Simulation Champions” from around the world to come together to network with peers, learn from experts, and see the latest medical simulators like those from Laerdal, CAE Healthcare or Gaumard.

HealthySimulation.com is dedicated to providing the latest #MedSim news and resources from around the world. To follow along, sign up for our free medical simulation email newsletter, follow @HealthySim on Twitter and @HealthySim on Facebook, or join our HealthySim LinkedIn Group!

The Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) hosts this event and offers over 250 sessions encompassing interactive and immersive courses and plenary sessions. The IMSH meeting is aligned with the SSH’s mission to “provide hands-on learning in leading-edge medical simulation trends and technology, networking and collaboration.” Furthermore, the programs are all peer-reviewed and are selected to serve the needs of novices to experts.

“Every year, professionals from all experience levels and from more than 50 countries attend IMSH,” Kathy Adams, Director of Continuing Education, SSH, said. “Any professional interested in or currently working in healthcare simulation will find value in the healthcare simulation conference; the range of learning formats — from small, interactive workshops, to large, inspiring plenaries – and the breadth of topics presented by global experts ensures that there is something for every learning style, interest and experience level.”

At IMSH meetings, key areas of discussion are often new ideas, leadership development, new processes and research findings, innovative approaches, design strategies, return on investment and improved communication techniques. As a catalyst for advancement and evolution in healthcare simulation technology, the IMSH brings together and connects industry professionals to learn. The event is considered to be one of the top educational and networking events for the healthcare simulation world, especially for those with interests in IPE.

Ultimately, when deciding on which topics to discuss at each meeting, the IMSH Planning Committee dedicates their time and expertise to creating a leading edge and memorable experience for attendees. In planning for the event, the committee seeks to ensure that some components differ from year to year. This means introducing new cutting-edge themes that set the framework for all content offerings, inviting dynamic keynote speakers and ensuring that presentations contain innovative learning formats (such as immersive courses, rapid-fire sessions, roundtable discussions, debates, panel discussions and in-depth and hands-on workshops).

Additionally, each year IMSH introduces new social events and networking opportunities, research initiatives (in-progress and complete), technology and the SimVentors Technology Showcase (featuring the brightest ideas in healthcare simulation). In support of improving patient care, the Society for Simulation in Healthcare is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team. This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive a maximum of 44.5 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.

Registration for the next IMSH event always opens in the Fall, and individuals interested in joining the IMSH email list can register online.

Other vendors in attendance will include SIMStation (and their US Distributor Level 3 Healthcare), Education Management Solutions, B-Line Medical, KBPort, Pocket Nurse, 3D Systems, SynDaver, and more!
