SimGHOSTS USA Opening Keynote Address by President James Cypert “Elevating the Dialogue” Sponsored by Level 3 Healthcare – SimGHOSTS President James Cypert presented on the importance of bringing in basic research methods in support of the professional development of Simulation Techs. He began the conversation with a community focus and topics for future research and invite a networking dialog to establish collaboration opportunities for designing, conducting, collecting, writing, and submitting well‑formed research. The goal of this the 2014 USA keynote address was to provide some of the basic tools, resources, and methods for providing evidence‑based practice for simulation technologists, ascertaining cogent research topics, and identifying collaborative opportunities, and establishing working relationships to achieve higher levels of dialog from and with the technician community.

SimGHOSTS Australia Opening Keynote by iSimulate “Innovation in Mobile Simulation” – On June 26th 2014, Platinum Sponsor iSimulate provided the opening keynote address to SimGHOSTS’ first overseas event, hosted at the University of The Sunshine Coast in the Queensland Region of Australia. The keynote was provided by Dr. Anthony Lewis, iSimulate Co-founder and Medical Director. This event was live-streamed for FREE through SimGHOSTS.org around the world for those who could not attend the three day event in Sippy Downs. The story of iSimulate is one of an identified need to make simulation technology easier, cheaper and more flexible that existing technology. Created by Medical Educators in Australia, iSimulate started as a idea and has progressed to become a company who’s products are used across the world. In this keynote, learn why and how two medical educators decided to challenge a simulation philosophy that “ever more” technologically advanced manikins are better. Instead, they took the cumbersome technology out of the manikin and placed it into an user-friendly iPad.
SimGHOSTS Australia Plenary Address by Dylan Campher Sponsored and Reflecting Upon the “Clinical Skills Development Service” - The Queensland Health Clinical Skills Development Service (CSDS) is one of the world’s largest providers of healthcare simulation. We deliver education and training to Queensland Health staff and healthcare providers throughout Australia. CSDS utilizes a hub-and-spoke model of support to support simulation providers throughout Queensland. With CSDS as the hub, this model focuses on providing systems and resources to support Pocket Simulation Centres, the spokes, ensuring the imbedding of simulation close to or within clinical environments. In conjunction with its role of providing support to hospital-based skills centres, the growth of Pocket Simulation Centres provides clinicians with the tools and techniques to address local needs. These in situ programs now address local training requirements, just-in-time training, and process redesign.
