This morning at the Metropolitan Hilton in Beirut, Lebanon, the LAU Gilbert and Rose-Marie School of Medicine 3rd International Conference on Medical Education, under the patronage of His Excellency The President of The Lebanese Republic General Michel Aoun, opened with a focus on Simulation for Education and Patient Safety.

Dr. Vanda Abi Raad, MD, MHPE Associate Professor of Anesthesiology Director and Clinical Simulation Center Co-Chair of the Scientific Committee helped co-chair the event alongside SESAM President Antoine Tesniere. The event was supported by SESAM and SimGHOSTS.

Dr. René Amalberti, MD, PhD Senior Advisor of Patient Safety for Haute Autorité de Santé France provided the opening keynote “Adapting medical simulation to the rapid massive structural and organizational changes occurring in healthcare”. Dr. Amalberti is a professor of medicine, physiology, and ergonomics – who after a residency in psychiatry, joined the Air Force in 1977, and graduated in aerospace medicine, obtaining a permanent military research position in 1982. He retired with the rank of general in February 2008 and is now working part-time as Senior Advisor, Patient Safety, at the Haute Autorité de Santé.

Dr. Amalberti explained that the costs of healthcare will dramatically in the next few decades as the population continues to grow and age. For example to this audience, he reminded us that the population aged over 60 in Lebanon will more than double by 2050 to 31%. Furthermore, he explained that simulation is a perfect fit for many of the challenges that will be facing healthcare as this demand continues to increase.

  • Develop training on interfaces and distant communication among professionals
  • Provide specific training scenario on the coordination between hospitals and primary care
  • Broaden the type of professionals involved to capture the true variety of pros involve in patients journey
  • Connect the time frame of training to the patient journey
  • Improve scenarios and debriefings introducing a larger range of strategies

He explained that by optimizing strategies to adopt best practices and working conditions you can better manage risks to increase control, recover, mitigate and innovate.

Dr. Amalberti’s latest book “Safer Healthcare Strategies for the Real World” is available for download for free. The opening ceremonies continued with Antoine Tesniere, President of SESAM.

Sidra Medical and Research Center To Orient Using Medical Simulation

medical simulation qatar

At IMSH 2014 HealthySim had the opportunity to interview Joanne Davies, Director of Simulation at Sidra Medical and Research Center which is located in Doha, Qatar. Sidra Medical and Research Center is an ultramodern, all-digital academic medical center which will set new standards in patient care for women and children in Qatar, the Gulf region and internationally. It encompasses three essential missions: World-Class Patient Care, Medical Education and Biomedical Research. Joanne and I talked about how Sidra will use medical simulation to orient new staff, equipment and systems before opening in 2015, living and working in Qatar and the exciting career opportunities just becoming available:

Over 5000 new hospital staff from around the world will be coming to Sidra and will all go through the Hospital’s healthcare simulation program, so that they can better learn how to work together in the new building. This will also provide administrators a great bird’s eye view of work flow and system bugs before opening the center to patients.  Sidra’s Medical Simulation team is passionate about supporting the development of this innovative field, as demonstrated by their connection to the IPSS Malawi project. Joanne shared a great fondness for Qatar and the immense support of the country’s leadership for healthcare, education and economy. There is a lot of opportunity here for Simulation Champions, especially technicians, who are open to the idea of working abroad in the middle east.
