WELCOME IMSH 2017 Presenters
Thank you for presenting educational and scientific content at the 17th International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH 2017). This page is your one stop for presenter updates and information as you prepare your for the meeting.

REQUIRED! Presenter Registration
All presenters at IMSH 2017 are required to register for the meeting.
IMSH 2017 REGISTRATION
All presenters are responsible for their own IMSH registration fees, travel and lodging expenses. Discounts on IMSH registration fees are not available for presenters at the meeting.
IMPORTANT!! Bring Your Own Laptops or Tablets to Present
You will present your electronic files (PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi, etc) from your own computer, laptop, or tablet at the meeting. A projector will be provided. Please bring the appropriate adapter so you can connect your device to the projector. Your connector must connect from your device to a standard HDMI or VGA port.
Connection Testing Center
An AV Connection Testing Center will be located in the SSH Presenter Center, Room Celebration 16 at the Hyatt Regency. You will be able to test drive your presentation device connection with the meeting projector system, run through and update your presentation, and obtain assistance from the meeting AV staff. We will have a limited supply of additional connectors available in the event you misplace or forget your own.
Each room will be set with one projector and screen and a sound system. Additional AV equipment is not available. Each room will be set with 1 easel flip chart and table top flip charts. Additional flip charts are available in presenter center. ( I added the above thinking that it would convey the message that we do not have extra projectors, screens, etc)
We would ask that you upload your electronic presentation materials into our IMSH 2017 Presentation Server. This is for archival purposes only. You can do this now by going to the following link: http://220.127.116.11/ssh. You can also stop by Presenter Center, Celebration 16, to upload your presentation. Your electronic files will NOT be used for further educational purposes without your consent.
IMSH Presenter Center
Put the final touches on your presentation, get AV assistance, upload your final electronic files, and obtain assistance with all of your presentation and technical needs in the IMSH Presenter Center, located in Celebration 16, on the first level of the Hyatt Regency Orlando.
Use of Institutional Logos in Electronic Presentation Materials
It is acceptable to display your institutional/commercial entity logo, in a non-promotional manner, on the first slide of your electronic presentation materials.

A link to floor plans of each room will be added soon to the IMSH 2017 Faculty Homepage. Please note, these floorplans cannot be changed.
Disclosure of Relevant Financial Relationships
It is the policy of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) to insure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all of its educational activities. All individuals in a position to control content of SSH educational or scientific content must disclose the name of commercial interests producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing healthcare and/or simulation-related goods or services with which the individual and his/her spouse or partner has had a relevant financial relationship within the past 12 months.
Please review the definitions below of “commercial interest”, “financial relationships”, “relevant financial relationships”, and “conflict of interest” to ensure compliance with this policy.
Commercial interest: A “commercial interest” is defined as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing healthcare and/or simulation-related goods or services used on patients. Providers of clinical service directly to patients are not considered commercial interests.
Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership or advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. Relationships of the individual’s spouse or partner are to be included as those of the individual.
Relevant financial relationships:
Financial relationships with commercial interests are relevant if they have occurred in the 12-month period preceding the time the individual is involved in controlling SSH educational and/or scientific content. There is no minimal dollar amount considered for relationships to be considered relevant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship.
Conflict of Interest: Circumstances create a conflict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect SSH educational or scientific content about products of services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a relevant financial relationship.
Non-Promotion of Relevant Financial Relationships during Educational Presentations
Required Verbal Disclosure of Relevant Financial Relationships
Note that at the beginning of an SSH educational presentation, course directors and all contributing faculty members must verbally disclose all relevant financial relationships, and also list those relationships on electronic presentation materials used during the presentation. Cooperation with this requirement is essential. Faculty will be evaluated on whether or not disclosure was made.
If financial relationships exist that are not related to the topic being presented, these relationships do NOT need to be disclosed.
If relevant financial relationships exist, in addition to verbal disclosure at the beginning of the presentation, faculty must discuss how the content has been adjusted to avoid the introduction of commercial bias during the presentation. For example, faculty may state that:
- “I am covering topics other than those represented by my relationship with (Name of commercial entity).”
- “I will not be presenting this content in a promotional manner.”
- “I will not endorse (name of commercial entity) during this presentation.”
- “Another faculty member is covering content related to this commercial entity.”
- “There will be no case studies or activities presented that in any way represent past, current or prospective clients of (name of commercial entity).”
- Any recommendations made during this presentation are evidence-based, or consistent with current consensus-based simulation practice.”
Educational content delivered by individuals with relevant financial relationships will be monitored by a member of the SSH Education Committee Content Advisory Review Team.
Promotional Activity Restriction & Non-endorsement of Commercial Entities
Endorsement of commercial entities, products, goods and services is not permitted in learning sessions that award contact hours. This will be strictly enforced.
In addition, faculty using equipment or materials for instruction during presentation of accredited content must refrain from endorsement of commercial products or companies during the presentation.
