Our SSH OBGYN SIG is happy to announce that we are actively working on a very exciting project, which we decided to entitle “Programmatic Sharing and Collaboration.”
Let us share with you our ideas with regard to this project. Over the last several years, we have often heard from our simulation colleagues in conversations, as well as during our official SIG meetings during SSH, and other professional societies that deal with simulation that is not so easy to access information about existing simulation programs, so that oftentimes we end up having to “re-invent the wheel” rather than tapping into expertise and learning from each other’s experiences.
There are many reasons for why that might be the case; lack of centralized portal website where all resources can be gathered and easily accessible, the fact that our specialty is dis-jointed in different sub-specialty societies where simulation information is only available to members of such society, and the fact that a lot of work in simulation is not published and therefore “not visible” are some of the possibilities.
We asked SSH members to post information on SIM connect for our OBGYN SIG, so thank you to those of you who have already done so. We are hoping to make it visible to non-members via this page in the near future.
We are hoping that with this project, we will be able to break down those barriers and advance our work by compiling a list of all resources together on this website. For example, textbooks, articles, ACOG sim consortium and CMQCC websites for individual programs, opportunities for training, research interests, and any other information would be wonderful to share with everyone involved.
To start with, we ask you to either post information about simulation resources you are familiar with on either OBGYN SIM connect website so that we could re-post it here or by emailing it to us directly (Veronica Lerner is the contact person for this project).
We are very much looking forward to hearing from you!
Veronica Lerner and OBGYN SIG leadership
