You do it every day. You tackle difficult - sometimes seemingly impossible – circumstances as you work to improve patient care through simulation-based healthcare education. Your efforts save lives; your teaching helps others save more lives.
You transform settings to look and feel like real-life environments with engaging scenarios that impart important lessons. You all too often have fewer staff than you need, less than optimal resources, challenging timelines, and multiple demands for your expertise. When budgets are impossibly tight, you find a way to make unaffordable solutions affordable, often operating your simulation program on a shoestring because you know that real lives are on the line.
You advocate – each day – for the use of simulation, because you know it is one of the most powerful learning tools we have in the quest to improve healthcare. You manage – day in and day out – to turn unintended gaps in practice into knowledge, using effective and engaging learning opportunities created through healthcare simulation.
Simulation is your mission. You are the champions of simulation. You make the Impossible, Possible!
Tell us how you do it! The theme for the 18th International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH 2018) is "Making the Impossible – Possible." We invite you to share your innovations in education, business, technology, gaming, operations, research, and faculty development as we work to build a conference that showcases the best techniques and strategies to optimize simulation-based education in healthcare.
