If you are in the UK, Europe or even beyond then ASPIH 2014 is a MUST-ATTEND healthcare simulation conference event! Last year myself and SimGHOSTS leadership were invited to present and connect during the three day event and found it to be one of the most refreshing and innovative meetings they have ever participated in.
“The Association for Simulated Practice in Healthcare (ASPiH) is a not-for-profit membership Association dedicated to improving patient care and professional performance by the use of simulated practice and technology enhanced learning. This conference will explore how simulation in its broadest sense, along with other modalities of technology enhanced learning, can be applied to enhance the development of expertise, rehearsal and reflection on clinical performance. The programme will also explore how we can strengthen the resilience of clinical practice and processes across all aspects of healthcare systems. Specific themes throughout the three days will enable delegates to access a breadth and depth of topics and expertise in the science and real world applications of HF in healthcare. Our aim is for delegates to leave with the ability to apply some key principles and practical approaches to enhance the education and training that they provide, and to improve the quality, safety and effectiveness of care for which they are responsible.”
The organization is still collecting workshop and presentation submissions so if you are interesting in presenting you can still get something good in there!
