My name is Jim Mooney, and I am the chair of the Low Cost, Low Resource (LCLR) Affinity Group. Clinicaly, I am a pediatric anesthesiologist and pediatric pain specialist. I am currently transitioning my practice to Atlanta, Georgia (United States).
My focus in simulation is on developing techniques to create patient specific simulants using rapid prototyping techniques such as 3D printing, casting & molding and laser cutting. Besides simulants, I hope to demonstrate do-it-yourself (DIY) production of a 3D printer and a device for testing simulation materials. I hope these techniques would allow centers nationally and globally to either create or acquire the simulants they need to prepare for any pediatric situation. I'm also a strong beleiver in open source methods, and hope to share my work in the literature as well as in files available for download.
Jack Wells, M.D serves as vice chair of the Low Cost Low Resource affinity group.He has been a member of SSH since 2011. Professionally he is on faculty at the University of Missouri Family Medicine residency program in Columbia, Missouri, where he holds the rank of Associate Professor.He recently earned CHSE certification. His interests in simulation are training residents and medical students to appropriately evaluate unstable patients in the hospital setting, and to train family medicine residents to perform procedures in the office and inpatient setting. He also has an interest in finding ways to meet the simulation training needs of those working in low resource environments.
