Redefining Fidelity in Medical Simulation
September 30, 2020 at 10:00 AM, Pacific Coast Time Zone
Presented by: Kevin King CCP(f), MBA
Fidelity is a term that has been used in the medical simulation field to describe how “real” or lifelike a simulator or simulated experience is. This presentation will challenge conventional assumptions of fidelity, and present a holistic approach to the new definition of fidelity. If the dictionary definition of fidelity is that which is defined as “real” , how can we replicate not just technology (manikins, AV systems, VR) but the entire simulated experience including technology, environment and aligned learning objectives?

Medical simulation has been the driving focus in every step of Kevin King’s career as a paramedic, sales leader and entrepreneur. Inspired to act after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, he created the first mobile simulation program for paramedics in eastern Canada and founded a national alliance for simulation specialists and educators. Kevin attended the inaugural Institute for Medical Simulation at CMS in Boston in 2004, where the foundation of medical simulation education was laid. In 2010, he was recognized by the prime minister of Canada for his emergency services leadership during the G8 summit in 2010. In 2018, King founded ECHO Healthcare, featuring a world-first approach to simulation service and support that earned the company global recognition after one year.
