Pediatric Simulation Research: Highlights and Resources from the International Pediatric Simulation Society IPSS
September 17, 2020 at 10:00 AM, Pacific Coast Time Zone
Presented by: Edward Rovera MS Ed, CHSE, CHSOS
A wealth of research in simulation education and training exists, and it is growing larger with each passing month. The International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS) has resources available for researchers in simulation education and training. This presentation will cover the different services IPSS offers to the simulation community. The relationship between IPSS and the INSPIRE Network will be covered as will the assistance available to new researchers. Finally, the value of the monthly research bibliography provided by IPSS will be discussed. Note: You do not need to be a member of IPSS or even involved in pediatric simulation specifically to benefit from what the Society offers.

Teaching Method: Lecture with Slide Presentation
- Discuss IPSS and its association wih the INSPIRE Network.
- Explain the role of the IPSS Cureus Channel in promoting research in simulation.

Suggested Learner Level: Beginner
Edward J. Rovera graduated from the University of California Irvine with a BA in Psychology and earned his MS Ed (emphasis in Educational Technology Leadership) from the California State University Hayward (now CSU East Bay). He joined the San Francisco State University School of Nursing in 2008 as a Nursing Informatics Specialist and is currently the Simulation Educator there. He was certified by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare as a Healthcare Simulation Educator (CHSE) and a Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialist (CHSOS) in 2015. Mr. Rovera has been a manuscript reviewer for Clinical Simulation in Nursing since 2014 and was appointed to its Editorial Board for a two-year term in January of 2017. He has presented on a variety of topics at IMSH, IPSSW, INACSL, and SimGHOSTS USA. While still involved in being the operations manager of the simulation center, he is presently focusing his energy on the ongoing viability and improvement of the School’s Nursing Simulation Program.
