3rd Annual Asia Pacific Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare Launches in Singapore

apmsh 2016 simulation singapore

Today 250 simulation champions from around Asia and the World came together for the 3rd annual APMSH meeting at the National University of Singapore. The event was organized by co-chairs Ms Kirsty Freeman, A/Prof Suresh Pillai, and Dr. Yasuharu Okuda, and is supported by the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and platinum sponsored by Asia-based simulation distributor TellYes. HealthySimulation.com was on hand to share this wonderful event!

About APMSH

This meeting brings together simulation experts, educationists, industry professionals and product distributors under one roof at the University Cultural Centre. The theme for this year’s conference “Improving Outcomes, Building Connections”, serves to underscore the utility of simulation training in enhancing patient safety and quality improvement, thereby ensuring better patient outcomes. Concurrently, the congregation of simulation professionals will help to promote regional and international cooperation, collaboration and networking by establishing ties with simulation specialists.

From exciting Pre-Conference Courses to renowned Plenary Speakers, in-conference workshops, podium presentations, poster submissions and cutting-edge product displays, there is definitely something for both the novice as well as the discerning simulation expert. Participate and engage with presenters and Special Interest Groups on the latest in Assessment & Evaluation, Program Administration, Faculty Development, Technical Operations, Instructional Methods, Research Methodologies and Interprofessional Education. Be enthralled by the first-ever Simulation Showcase highlighting live demonstrations of different countries’ approach to simulation and be invigorated by an intense debate by simulation experts during the Simulation Debate!

Inaugural Pan Asia Simulation Society in Healthcare Video Interview

passh asian healthcare simulation society

Late last year HealthySimulation.com attended the inaugural Pan Asia Simulation Society in Healthcare conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia hosted by Taylor’s University. The three day event brought together simulation champions from across Asia and the United States for courses in debriefing, international collaboration, technology integration, and more. During that time we had a chance to video interview PASSH President Sabrina Koh RN, MHSc(Edu), PGDip(CC), CHSE, Assistant Director of Nursing of Sengkang Health in Singapore – who helped to launch the organization and the event. Also on hand was Dr. Paul Phrampus, Director of the WISER Center, Past SSH President, and Keynote speaker of the inaugural event.

Dr. Michelle Kelley Provides PASSH Plenary on Beyond CPR – Alternate Sim Scenarios to Enhance Performance

passh simulation confernece

The second plenary of day 2 at the Pacific Asia Simulation Society in Healthcare (PASSH) was provided by Dr. Michelle Kelley, Associate Professor and Director of Simulation at Curtin University Perth, who spoke on moving beyond CPR to consider alternate simulation scenarios to enhance performance and clinical judgement.

Michelle reminded us that simulation allows us to “put all the elements together, not just the what of clinical learning but the how for clinical performance”. Michelle provided a plethora of practices which enable educators to improve learning outcomes through simulation.

One such example was modeling practice, where a nursing instructor provides poor communication to a mother and her pregnant teenage daughter. The learners are in another room, and not engaging with any simulated manikins. At first poor communication methods are provided, and after debriefing, good communication techniques are shown allowing the students to watch the stark differences. Further in the simulation lab, the students themselves are provided the opportunity to engage with the same standardized patients to practice the skills previously demonstrated.

Michelle shared that the research shows that the number one ranking of what matter most in simulation learning for students is the facilitated debriefing. What was fascinating in her talk was the presentation of a number of standardized patient actors to provide educational opportunities for nursing students primarily designed for communication practice training. Immobile simulated manikins were absent from the advanced simulations, where use of SPs powerfully demonstrated the increased fidelity of real live engagements.

 

 

Inaugural Pan Asia Simulation Society in Healthcare Meeting October 23rd-25th

healthcare simulation asia

Are you in the asia-pacific region and looking to connect and learn from your simulation peers? Then join me this October 23rd-25th at the Pan Asia Simulation Society in Healthcare (PASSH) inaugural event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Letter From the Organizers:

On behalf of the Pan Asia Simulation Society in Healthcare (PASSH), it is a great pleasure and honor to invite you, to the PASSH’s Inaugural Conference to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on October 23 to 25, 2015.

This inaugural conference, jointly organised with the Taylor’s University, will be held under the theme “Healthcare Simulation in Asia: Today, Future & Beyond” will bring together motivated simulation leaders and learners from the Asia region. This will be the perfect opportunity to network and learn from each other, and to seek ways to integrate and apply simulation to educational curriculum more fit to the Asian culture and environment. We have invited a renowned simulation leader who have dedicated countless hours and days in helping advance healthcare simulation in Asia, Dr. Paul Phrampus from University of Pittsburgh.

All of the members and staff of the organizing committee, including the co-chairs are making every effort to ensure the success of the upcoming event and to make it a more meaningful and enjoyable moment of harmony. Please honor us with your presence to celebrate this historical event, and we hope that you will take back wonderful memories of Kuala Lumpur, a city of ancient heritage and modern technology. We welcome your interest and participation and look forward to meeting you in Kuala Lumpur in October 2015.

The Keynote presentation will be provided by Dr. Paul Phrampus, Wiser Simulation Center Director & SSH Past President.
