At IPSSW 2015 I had the opportunity to learn more about Boston Children’s Hospital’s SIMPeds program, which enables area wide simulation training, testing, networking, and innovative engineering opportunities — as well as consulting for programs with specific needs. Lead by Peter Weinstock MD, PhD, Anesthesia Chair in Pediatric Simulation Senior Associate in Critical Care Medicine Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School, SIMPeds has recently expanded its programs into a number of key areas encompassing the “SIMPeds Ecosystem”:

SIMPeds SIM Network division reaches beyond walls to connect Boston Children’s to its families as well as local and regional pediatric healthcare community. Goals of SIM Network are to produce novel mechanisms to cascade BCH “know how” throughout the community as well as to develop sustainable simulation activities to occur on-site to support partnering institutions. Partners include the BCH Network Hospitals, Pre-hospital/EMS, Massachusetts Fire and Police Departments. SIM Network innovatively reaches our families and caregivers by providing pre-discharge SIM education to mitigate anxiety through education and prepare and facilitate easy and safe transitions. SIMPeds can consult to assist with the development of your international simulation center. Click the link below to learn more.
