Media Partners has established media partnerships with leading non-profit organizations around the world who champion the causes associated with improving healthcare outcomes through the use of healthcare simulation best practices. These media partnerships provide for in-kind no-cost exchanges of marketing materials between and the organizations in-order to spread awareness about available resources, many of which are low or no cost.  The goal is that each media partnership helps and these organizations and associations to showcase each other’s work to increase the utilization of their services to the global healthcare simulation community. With as many as 45,000+ readers a month between the website, free bi-monthly email newsletter, and social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn – has become the leading independent resource website for healthcare simulation champions around the world, and we wish to promote the work of these amazing organizations without advertising fees.

The overall aim of a media affiliation with includes promoting each respective entity and their endeavors amongst relevant networks and wider communities through a variety of routes including traditional and online marketing methods. Other goals include sharing and developing new knowledge, skills, and resources to benefit the respective communities of each entity. A media partnership is further designed to increase each entity’s awareness of and participation in the other’s events and online services/resources.

Each media partnership is intended to be active through a range of mechanisms, namely by providing time for one meeting annually between nominated representatives of each entity to discuss progress against stated outcomes for the partnership, any amendment of these terms, and to discuss the content roadmap for the upcoming year as deemed necessary. Partnerships are also promoted online through quarterly email messages to share marketing materials, short-term goals, and outcomes. The marketing and promotion of each entity through online/social media platforms and through physical dissemination of materials at events and conferences if in attendance also helps to increase organizational awareness. Below is a list of current media partnerships:
