15th international meeting on simulation in healthcare (IMSH) 2016 conference
Today, Friday 15 January, members of the SaIL team will be heading out to attend and present at the 15th international meeting on simulation in healthcare(IMSH) 2016 conference in San Diego, California running from the 16 to 20 January 2016.
Joining simulation and education peers and experts from around the globe, this is the largest gathering of simulation healthcare professionals to share best practices.
Peter Jaye will be hosting an innovative workshop with Suzie Wilson from Clod Ensemble's Performing Medicine introducing the concepts and ideas of arts-based learning in simulation, a partnership that has created unique arts-based training programmes that enhances care and compassion in healthcare professionals.
The team, led by Peter Jaye and Gabriel Reedy will host two exciting interative workshops centred around debriefs titled 'Expert debriefing: the right tool for the job' and 'Evaluate learning in a debrief: how do we do it, what does it tell us?' working alongside partner colleagues from King's College London, University of Surrey and Glasgow Caledonian University.
Gabriel Reedy has also been invited to participate in a panel with several expert simulation practitioners and scholars from around the globe, sharing their ideas and experiences using particular theories for educational-based simulation.
Beth Thomas will deliver a podium presentation titled 'Share simulation with inner city youths: lead Ssmulation into wider community education' with Professor Anna Jones from Glasgow Caledonian University, presenting new possibilities for using simulation outside of healthcare education settings, in particular to positively impact wider community education, supported by the evaluation findings from our popular and highly successful Hands Up for Health programme.
We wish all the team the best of luck and look forward to their return to hear what's 'hot' in the world of simulation.
My day with Hands up for Health
Matthew Blow, who undertook work experience at King's Health Partners (KHP) in April 2014, writes about his day with the Hands Up for Health education scheme, held at our Simulation and Interactive Learning Centre.
