Call for Content NOW OPEN
REUNITE. CONNECT. ADVANCE.
Welcome to the 22nd International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH 2022)! The Planning Team for IMSH 2022 is pleased to announce the opening of the IMSH 2022 Call for Content.
Mark your calendars now to be with us in Los Angeles, California, January 15 – 19, 2022 to reunite, connect, and advance healthcare simulation and patient safety. Whether you join in person, or via our new hybrid virtual format, we can’t wait to see you for the 22nd International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH 2022).
Our CALL FOR CONTENT is now open! You’ll be able to submit content for both live, in-person presentation in Los Angeles, and for IMSH Delivers, the popular virtual delivery option which allows you to present online if you are unable to join us in LA.
The use of these three words as our theme allows us many opportunities for developing key content streams and topics for IMSH 2022. The following content areas have been suggested by the IMSH 2022 Planning Team as areas for emphasis:
- Advancing diversity, equity and inclusion
- Connecting healthcare simulation and patient safety
- Continuation of the SimOps theme “Unify” to bring the community back together following the Covid-19 pandemic
- Strengthened menu of offerings for Operations Specialists
- Enhanced mentorship content and opportunities
- More interactions/connections/networking
- Content for those just getting started in simulation
The opportunities to integrate innovative applications of this theme throughout the meeting are many! The Planning Team is looking for your help to achieve a spirit of reunion, reconnection and unity as we continue to work together to advance simulation practice.

IMPORTANT!! ALLOW AMPLE TIME TO ADD CO-PRESENTERS
START EARLY! The deadline for all submissions is Wednesday, June 9, 2021. Be sure to start your submissions early enough to allow time for all co-presenters to create and update their SSH accounts. This is a requirement for all presenters and must be final by the deadline of 5:00 PM Eastern on Wednesday, June 9, 2021. Submissions incomplete and pending co-presenter information at the deadline will NOT move forward for peer review.
The content submission database features a co-presenter look-up function. If you do not find your co-presenter through the look-up feature, that individual does not currently have an account with SSH. You will need to ask your co-presenter to first create an SSH account before he/she can be added to your submission. You may also add your co-presenter with their SSH Contact ID number. Your co-presenter can find this number in their SSH profile.
Be sure to share the instructions above with co-presenters for creating an SSH account and completing the required profile information.
You will be able to continue completing the submission form, even if you are unable to add a co-presenter immediately. Simply save and close the submission form without finalizing. Once all of your co-presenters have created and updated their SSH accounts, you will be able to log back into your submission, add your co-presenters, and finalize your submission.
All presenters are required to create and maintain an SSH member or non-member profile at ssih.org. Before beginning your submission, please complete the following:
- Create an account, or log into your existing SSH Profile at ssih.org
- Complete/update your SSH profile, including all of the following tabs:
- Name (be sure to complete/update position title and institution name)
- Address (be sure to complete business city, state and country)
- Phones/Emails (be sure to note a key email address and key mobile phone number we can use to reach you if necessary)
- Demographics (choose all of the degrees, licensures and certifications, along with any healthcare specialties that apply)
- Bio (complete the bio statement field AND upload your most recent CV using the pdf upload tool at the bottom of the “Bio” tab
- Disclosure (complete all fields to disclose your current financial relationships with relevant entities involved in healthcare simulation)
For assistance creating an account and/or updating your SSH profile, please contact Becca Fletcher, SSH Customer Service Representative.
You are limited to one incomplete submission per submission type at a time, so if you have an existing submission that you are currently working on in that form, you will need to complete that submission before beginning a new one.
REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR ALL PRESENTERS
All presenters of content accepted to IMSH 2022 and IMSH Delivers MUST register for the meeting. Several registration options are available, including single-day passes.

A non-AV, small workshop option has been added that is available for hands-on workshops scheduled in meeting rooms with a capacity of 30 learners or less. Standard AV provided in larger meeting rooms includes one LCD projector, microphones, and speakers.
