The purpose of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare is to serve a global community of practice enhancing the quality of healthcare.
SSH seeks to improve performance and reduce errors in patient care through the use of simulation. Established in 2004 by professionals using simulation for education, testing, and research in health care, SSH membership includes physicians, nurses, allied health and paramedical personnel, researchers, educators and developers from around the globe. SSH fosters the improvement and application of simulation–based modalities such as human patient simulators, virtual reality, standardized patients and task trainers.
Recognizing that simulation represents a paradigm shift in health care education, SSH promotes improvements in simulation technology, educational methods, practitioner assessment, and patient safety that promote better patient care and can improve patient outcome.
A major venue for advancing simulation in medicine is the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH). A precursor to IMSH was the first Society for Technology in Anesthesia (STA) meeting with simulation as the focus in 1998. In January 2001, the First International Meeting for Medical Simulation (IMMS) was held. This became the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare with an official name change in 2007 to reflect the diversity of SSH.
- Publishes Simulation in Healthcare, the leading multidisciplinary publication encompassing all areas of applications and research in healthcare simulation technology.
- Offers the SSH Accredited Program, which provides an intensive, customized evaluation of simulation programs worldwide. There are currently 65 accredited simulation programs from seven countries and 10 provisionally accredited programs from three countries.
