Please join us for our 3rd annual conference in the South East, this time held at the imposing Southampton Solent University venue with a Safety and Simulation focus. We will embark on 2 exciting days of a 3 course dinner, Keynote Dr Dawn Benson, multiple workshops, e-posters and oral presentations. There will be plenty of time to network, you can sign up for the ‘Meet the Deans’ session as well as enjoy a buzzing industry exhibition hall over lunch. Take tours of this wonderful facility, relax in the wellbeing space, win prizes and even engage with Maritime Simulation! We hope to see you there! Tickets are limited, early bird and abstracts close on midnight on the 1st January 2024.
Educators know the importance of communities of practice, of coming together as colleagues, collaborators, experts, and novices to learn from, with and about each other. In that spirit, a passionate group of Simulation enthusiasts gathered at Bond University on the Gold Coast to share the latest evidence and experiences in healthcare simulation at Simulation: Reconnect 2023.
Collaborate, Connect & Chat—three powerful words chosen by the conference organising committee to
encapsulate and establish the tone for the inaugural Transpacific Simulation Alliance Event. Convened by the
California Simulation Alliance, the Hawai'i State Simulation Collaborative, and the Victorian Simulation
Alliance, this boutique conference was held against the magnificent backdrop of Waikiki, Hawai’i, 17-20
ASPiH conference 2023: Sustainable Simulation. 6th to 8th November 2023 at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Brighton, UK.
Writing retreat for healthcare simulation researchers (October 17, 18 and 20, 2023 in Honolulu, Hawai’i)
On the 7th December 2022, the Faculty of Health Sciences at the Australian Catholic University (ACU) ran its 12th Simulation Health Education Showcase. The Simulation Showcase is built on the philosophy of collaboration, which is why for the last 12 years, it has been delivered in partnership with the Australian and New Zealand Laerdal Medical team and offered free to all attendees. The theme this year was Innovation and inclusion for continuing learner centred simulation which was reflected by the attendee representation from nine health disciplines, from both industry and academia.
The International Journal of Healthcare Simulation - Advances in Theory & Practice (IJoHS) is a single-blind peer-reviewed open access journal. The journal currently publishes free of any article processing charges.
The journal is a member of Crossref and is actively exploring opportunities for inclusion in the leading scientific indexes. Each article is given a unique digital object identifier (DOI), these are shared with the scientific community through channels including Crossref and Google Scholar.
