THE INTERNATIONAL MEETING FOR SIMULATION IN HEALTHCARE TO TAKE PLACE IN NEW ORLEANS, JANUARY 10-14
JANUARY 5, 2015 – WASHINGTON, DC – New technologies, strategies, studies and devices that demonstrate how simulation-based education can improve the quality of healthcare will be on display January 10-14 in New Orleans at the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH).
The conference, the premier educational and networking event for healthcare simulationists from all disciplines is organized by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) and is expected to convene more than 2,000 physicians, nurses, educators, practitioners, researchers and other health care professionals dedicated to advancing the use of simulation.
The conference will include a showcase where users of virtual and game-based technology can collaborate and network.
Educational sessions at the meeting will highlight new and emerging ways that simulation is being used in healthcare training.
Simulation represents the underpinning for educational training in healthcare. As the health care environment leans more toward preventive care, simulation will gain greater importance as it provides a unique learning experience and hands-on education.
Members of the media may attend the conference at no charge. To register as media, contact David Harrison, at firstname.lastname@example.org

The Society for Simulation in 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 fosters the improvement and application of simulation–based modalities such as human patient simulators, virtual reality, standardized patients and task trainers.
